Why do so many doctors on Health Tapp recommend NAAT tests for HIV testing when HIV professionals recommend the 4th gen test as a better test.

Why do so many doctors on Health Tapp recommend NAAT tests for HIV testing when HIV professionals recommend the 4th gen test as a better test.

Can my regular doctor do the audiology test in his clinic?

Depends: Many doctors have the training necessary to do this, but a lot of physicians don't have the equipment because there isn't enough need for it in their practice.
