Steven M. Pounders, M.D.
HIV Specialty and Adult Primary Care in Dallas, Texas.
Steven M. Pounders, M.D. provides a wide array of services to meet the needs of patients from all different backgrounds. Our practice is equipped with highly talented clinical and support staff who are ready to walk every patient through personalized care plans.
The practice provides comprehensive care for patients with HIV, as well as offering adult primary care, concierge medicine, lab facilities, cosmetic procedures, gender affirmation, PrEP, PEP, vaccinations, assessment and treatment of anal dysplasia, and chronic care management.
While we are still searching for a cure for HIV, we have found a way to prevent it! Our office can help you get started on an exciting one pill a day regimen called Truvada for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis).
Taking one pill a day can help prevent you from contracting HIV. While you still can get HIV while taking PrEP, it is very rare. Our office makes the quarterly visits required for PrEP easy, providing lab draw services in-office, and making scheduling a snap.
Adult Primary Care
Doctor Pounders and Doctor Nyland have assembled an exemplary group of primary care providers. Come see us for your annual wellness exam and lab work, regular follow-ups for medication management and chronic conditions, acute illnesses and injuries, and for any referrals required by your insurance.
We’ve spent years getting to know local specialists and facilities, to help guide you in the right direction for specialized care if the need ever arises.
Our office keeps many vaccinations in stock to be administered conveniently during the appointment with your provider.
Our providers also keep track of the latest vaccination available for prevention of shingles, meningitis, HPV (human papillomavirus), and others.
Doctor Pounders and several of our other providers have been trained to administer cosmetic fillers such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Sculptra, and Perlane. This began as a way to help patients combat AIDS wasting syndrome, but has become a convenience for patients who would like to have their cosmetic work done by a familiar face.
For the convenience of our patients, we have partnered with LabCorp to set up a small lab station in our office. Instead of going to a patient service center, you can come see your regular lab tech for your annual lab draws.
They can also draw labs for Quest Diagnostics and other laboratory services depending on what is preferred by you or your insurance.
The world is more demanding and stressful as ever, but our providers are here to give you a helping hand. We’re always willing to lend a caring ear with any mental health issues, and can help guide you in a direction that will help, whether it be referring you to one of our trusted mental heal professionals, prescribing an appropriate medication, or suggesting lifestyle adjustments.
Preventive medicine is the practice of keeping patients healthy. The goal of preventive medicine is to protect, promote, and maintain health and well-being to prevent disease, disability, and death.
Our providers will look at your health as a whole, and work to keep you as fit and healthy as possible. Part of this is your annual wellness visit, where we’ll go over common health maladies, and ways to prevent them.
Substance Abuse, Smoking Cessation, and Weight Loss
There are some problems that can be incredibly hard to overcome on your own, and that’s where our office comes in. If you are looking to get yourself off of longtime opioid usage, quit smoking, or lose some weight, you can schedule a visit with one of our providers for a consultation to look over the options.
Chronic Care Management
Medicare now offers a special program for members who have two or more chronic conditions. With CCM, or Chronic Care Management, you’ll have extra access to your healthcare providers to help you navigate your needs.
All of our providers are experienced in providing the hormone replacement therapy needed for gender affirmation. The office has worked with transgender individuals for many years, and strives to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all.
