Infectious Disease Associates, P.A., provides consultations and expert patient care for illnesses due to bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections. We pride ourselves on staying current with the latest advances in infectious disease medicine. In treating patients, our goal is to first correctly diagnose the illness through a patient interview and examination, and then to recommend appropriate diagnostic testing and an effective treatment plan. We strive to provide excellent communication to our patients and referring physicians throughout this process.
Who Are We?
As Infectious Disease specialists, we are doctors of internal medicine who are certified experts in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Our expertise also includes special insight in the use of antibiotics and their potential adverse effects. ID Specialists have additional training and understanding in immunology (how the body fights infection), epidemiology (how infections spread), and infection control (preventive measures to stop the spread of infections).
Who Needs Us?
Your personal physician is able to take care of most infections, but sometimes specific expertise is needed. We may be consulted in situations where there is a persistent fever or elevated White Blood Cell (WBC) count. We see patients with recurrent infections of the skin or urinary system. We treat those with Lyme disease, give recommendations for travel health and vaccines, and manage the care of individuals with HIV and others with lowered immune systems.
