Infectious Disease Care
Infectious Diseases A-Z
Bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections can present themselves in many ways throughout the human body — and they are notoriously difficult to identify, for patients and general internists alike. Understanding how and why unusual or complicated infections occur requires an infectious disease specialist — a medical professional with highly specialized expertise in both the origin of an infection, and how it might present itself clinically. Having this unique knowledge allows us to design treatment plans with the least amount of medication and the safest, most successful outcome for every patient we serve — both in and outside of our nine convenient locations. While every patient and infectious disease is different, the most effective infectious disease care and treatments — with the lowest potential for adverse effects — come from an accurate diagnosis.
The most common infectious diseases we care for at ID Care include:
