Infectious Disease Treatment

Specialists Experienced in Treating Common & Exotic Infections

Infectious diseases are medical conditions caused by foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses. There are many ways to contract an infectious disease, such as eating contaminated food or getting bitten by certain types of insects. And there are many different types of infections: some are contagious, some can be treated at home, and some are even life threatening. If you have a fever or other symptom of an infectious disease, you should consult with a doctor as soon as possible for help managing the symptoms and working toward recovery.

You should meet with a doctor if you have any symptoms of an infection. Some of the more serious symptoms include:

  • Fever with headache
  • Fever that occurs after a bite from an animal or bug
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Vision problems
  • Frequent diarrhea and/or vomiting
  • Rashes
  • Swelling
  • Fever lasting for more than two days

Infectious Disease Specialists are trained in diagnosing and treating a variety of infections from common viruses to exotic infections. They see patients in their own offices and collaborate with other clinicians for patients in the hospital.
