What does an Infectious Disease Specialist do?

An Infectious Disease Specialist is an internist, who has qualified training and expertise in diagnosing, treating, and preventing infections. Along with this knowledge comes a particular insight into the use of antibiotics and their potential adverse effects. Our ID Specialists provide special insight and expertise regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infections of all types including:

  • HIV
  • chronic Hepatitis B and C
  • Lyme Disease
  • MRSA
  • sexually transmitted diseases
  • Tuberculosis
  • postoperative infections
  • and many others

An infectious disease specialist can best determine what treatment is needed (if any) for various infections, and what antibiotics should be administered (if any are indicated).


When should an appointment be scheduled with an Infectious Disease Specialist?

  • When an infection is difficult to diagnose.
  • When an infection is accompanied by a high fever.
  • When an infection does not respond to treatment.
  • When a person plans to travel to a foreign country or a location where infection risks are high.
  • When living with with HIV/AIDS for overall care.
