LOS ANGELES (AP) — A San Fernando Valley clinic that caters to porn stars has re-opened after being forced to close for operating under the wrong type of license.

Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation spokeswoman Jennifer Miller says the clinic is now a private corporation, instead of a non-profit operating under a physician’s license.

State officials informed the clinic in May that it needed to correct its licensure, and it closed after being served with a cease-and-desist order in December.

The clinic is a preferred medical provider of many actors in the porn industry, providing a discreet environment for frequent HIV tests.
