Dr. Borga needs to be brought before NJ State medical boards and lose her license as do those so-called "nurses". This is so reminiscent of what went on during the early years of the epidemic. Where have these people been for the past 25 years? A disgrace to the health field.

I am saddened by this, yet also amazed a doctor would be that foolish to say something so inflammatory.

I can't believe people think they can get away with things like this. Religious hospitals Aren't any better than any other hospital. They have no right to deny someone their required medication. You don't see them telling diabetes patients they can't have insulin or heart patients they can't have their blood pressure meds. This is clearly religious based bigotry and I hope he sues their pants off.

The moral of this story is that if you know you are going to be hospitalized BYOM. Last year when I had my gall bladder removed I brought my own meds. Having said that, there is no excuse for bad behavior by doctors, nurses, and hospital administrators. I hope this guy gets his day in court.

Discrimination is Rampant in this nation, we send Billions to other nations to help pay for meds, yet thousands of our own citizens do not have adequate care, or access to medications, try to get a job as soon as they find out your HIV + you will find that your job may not last very long at all, the longer we wait the worse it is going to get, don't wait until you find yourself being photographed against your will, as a condition of your continued treatment. Its already happening now.
