I'm a MSM and spoke to my doctor, who fails to acknowledge my orientation and concerns, about PrEP. Where should I go for this medication?

In brief: Be direct

This topic is just starting to get more attention in mainstream primary care.
The medication can be expensive and not well covered. You might want to get more information on coverage of Truvada (emtricitabine and tenofovir) through your insurance to see if it will be cost prohibitive. If treatment will be affordable it is definitely worth being more direct with him about starting treatment.
