Jun 25, 2012 - Dear Doctor/Practitioner, As you are aware, the successful treatment of Gonorrhea has had to continually evolve as the infection becomes progressively resistant to more and more of the available antibiotics.In recent reports from clinicians who have treated Gonorrhea and reported it, the Pima County Health Department has noted a number of medication regimens utilized that are not in line with current recommendations of the CDC. As a result, we have had to contact a number of persons to travel to our clinic in order to re-treat them.
