Infectious Disease

The infectious disease specialist sees patients with infections that are unusually persistent or severe, or that involve an unusual agent. The specialist in infectious diseases often manages patients with bacterial diseases of the bone, wounds, urinary tract, joints, and sinuses; severe viral infections such as mononucleosis, hepatitis, and AIDS; Lyme disease; and fevers of undetermined origins. Our infectious disease specialist is also available for consultation to foreign travelers and is an expert in preventive medicine, and diagnosing and treating illnesses that arise during foreign travel.
