Infectious diseases:

are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They're normally harmless or even helpful, but some organisms under certain conditions may cause disease.

Some infectious diseases can be transmitted from person to person. Some, however, are transmitted via bites from insects, birds, animals, or reptiles. Others are acquired by ingesting contaminated food or water or other exposures in the environment.

Signs and symptoms vary, but often include fever and chills. Mild complaints may respond to outpatient therapies, while some life-threatening infections may require hospitalization.

Many infectious diseases, such as measles, shingles, hepatitis and polio, can be prevented by vaccines.

 

ID Specialists also assist healthy people who will be traveling overseas to a location where the risk of infection is elevated or undefined. In these cases, the ID Specialist may recommend additional travel related medical guidance and vaccinations prior to visit to prevent infection. Make sure to schedule your appointments well in advance of travel. You should see Travel (ID specialist) as soon as travel is planned.

 

In cases of chronic infection, such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis, the ID Specialist may serve as the personal physician, to coordinate the best possible treatment plan for the patient.
