What do we treat?

ID specialists diagnose and treat conditions resulting form all types of infections, including those caused by germs such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.

These microscopic organisms may create symptoms ranging from sore throat and fever (as in the case of strep throat) to more serious infections (involving other organs such as the lungs, bones or heart) and even deadly problems (such as AIDS or meningitis).

The ID specialist works with your personal physician to determine which diagnostic tests are appropriate. If treatment is necessary, your doctor and the ID specialist will work together to develop a treatment plan best suited to your needs.

»  Travel Medicine

ID specialists also see healthy people who plan to travel to foreign countries or locations where infection risk is higher. In these cases, ID specialists can help determine whether special immunizations or other preventive measures are necessary to protect travelers from disease.
