San Diego HIV/AIDS Service Providers Under Investigation

San Diego’s Office of Compliance is investigating complaints against the Family Health Centers of San Diego and San Ysidro Health Center’s HIV/AIDS services, San Diego News Network reports. Findings from the investigation are expected in 30 to 45 days.

According to the article, the allegations against the two organizations include misused funds, poor patient treatment and staff misconduct. Both community-based organizations receive federal Ryan White funding for their HIV/AIDS services.

“[We] cannot speculate on the allegations…but [the federal government’s Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)] expects that its grantees provide quality care that affords patients dignity and respect,” said a spokesperson for HRSA, which administers Ryan White funding.

The San Ysidro Health Center received about $15 million in federal funding, and Family Health Centers of San Diego received about $9 million in federal funding.

Wow I'm not even surprised. The San Ysidro clinic was a joke. The doctor always seemed to rush through my visit. I signed paperwork to have my records brought over from the Owens clinic and in 6 months they never arrived. Now I'm at the clinic on 30th, but not really happy about it. Finding a good HIV/AIDS doctor or clinic is like a needle in a haystack.

Im not surprised and glad these two clinics are being looked into. Its well known in the community that both clinics are the Grantee's Pet projects and he always looks out for both clinics. Patients have complained at the Planning Council meetings about both sites but the Grantee has failed to do anything! I could not agree with the other comment about the Case Managers at both sites need to be looked into also!

Wow this is surprising. I'm a patient at FHC in San Diego on 30th St. and my doctor "L" rocks! She actually listens to me and is thorough. I've found the clinic staff to be very good as well. Their case workers are not too bright, don't know how to return phone calls and I find I know more than them. If they want to investigate someplace, try the hell that is UCSD's Owen Clinic. I actually had my care provider there say "I'm in charge of your health care and you have to do what I say."
