AIM Officially Closed; Database Taken Offline

LOS ANGELES—AIM Medical Associates’ executive director Sharon Mitchell finally confirmed to AVN after much industry speculation that the clinic has closed its doors. AIM began serving the industry in 1998.

Mitchell also acknowledged that the AIM database has been taken offline making it impossible for producers to check the status of performers’ tests.

“We are officially closed over financial hardship,” Mitchell said. “We had to close.”

Mitchell declined to make a further statement.

The database operated by AIM Medical Associates P.C. has been inaccessible to industry producers and talent since sometime Monday. A blank screen is all that resolves when one tries to access

In the meantime, most performers working in the Greater Los Angeles area are now using Talent Testing Service, which also has a wholly owned subsidiary in Miami and works with a network of draw stations located around the country.
