00:00:01 00:00:04 >> Hep C is like the silent disease that everybody's
00:00:04 00:00:08 kind of hush-hush about, but they're learning that it's okay
00:00:08 00:00:10 because I now can be cured from hep C.
00:00:10 00:00:12 >> People ask me, say, "How can you sit
00:00:12 00:00:14 "up there and tell people?"
00:00:14 00:00:15 Why not?
00:00:15 00:00:17 I can help somebody else. >> That's right.
00:00:17 00:00:19 >> I do believe that a lot of people do not want
00:00:19 00:00:22 to get tested because of the stigma
00:00:22 00:00:26 and because of them not being more knowledgeable.
00:00:26 00:00:29 >> What's gonna happen because I know a lot
00:00:29 00:00:30 of stuff happens to the liver?
00:00:30 00:00:32 It affects the liver.
00:00:32 00:00:34 >> We'll go over the results of your blood work together,
00:00:34 00:00:37 and from there, we can choose which medication is going
00:00:37 00:00:40 to work best for you and get you cured.
00:00:40 00:00:43 >> This is an infection that kills more Americans
00:00:43 00:00:48 than HIV and about 59 other infections combined.
00:00:48 00:00:50 So the question then is which treatment
00:00:50 00:00:52 is better for virus that's been exposed,
00:00:52 00:00:57 and then our nurses will provide a individualized approach.
00:00:57 00:00:59 >> We're starting to see your blood sugar go up a little bit.
00:00:59 00:01:00 >> Right, right. >> And your blood pressure--
00:01:00 00:01:02 >> Now in the typical practice setting, you make
00:01:02 00:01:06 an appointment maybe a couple weeks or months down the road.
00:01:06 00:01:10 Here, our case managers can deal with all the insurance
00:01:10 00:01:13 issues that get thrown up in our healthcare system,
00:01:13 00:01:17 and they can be seen that same day by one of our clinicians
00:01:17 00:01:21 and evaluated for their candidacy for treatment.
00:01:21 00:01:24 >> So the lower the number, the better your liver looks.
00:01:24 00:01:25 >> Oh. >> Does that make sense?
00:01:25 00:01:28 >> So I think, as a team, we really work together
00:01:28 00:01:30 to let the patient know, hey, we're here to help you.
00:01:30 00:01:33 We're here to help heal you, and then after that,
00:01:33 00:01:35 we're also here to make sure that you get
00:01:35 00:01:37 the best quality of care.
00:01:37 00:01:39 >> All you have to do is walk in, you know
00:01:39 00:01:41 what I mean, walk right on in.
00:01:41 00:01:44 (upbeat music)
00:01:52 00:01:55 (gentle music)
