Infectious DiseasePhysiciansLocations

The specialty of infectious disease involves the diagnosis and treatment of a whole range of infections, including viral, bacterial, tuberculosis, fungal, and parasitic infections that involve any organ system in the body or the patient as a whole. Doctors from the Department of Infectious Disease are often called upon to help diagnose patients with fevers, regardless of whether the source is secondary to infection or has some noninfectious cause, such as drugs, tumors, or autoimmune disease.

In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of the individual patient, the infectious disease specialist has a responsibility to the community as a whole: evaluating the impact of infectious disease on the public and working on its prevention through immunization and cooperation with the state and local health authorities.

Our areas of specialty include:

  • Consultation
  • Problem-oriented visits
  • Hospital care
  • Complete physical examinations
  • Preventive health care
  • Travel immunizations
