Infectious Diseases Specialists examine difficult cases. Most of our patients have multiple drug allergies, multiple resistant bacteria, fungi, HIV or other complicated infections. Most patients referred to our practice have failed oral antibiotics. All of our physicians are board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and 7 of them are also Board Certified in Infectious Diseases.
ID specialists review medical data including x rays, laboratory reports such as blood cultures, urine cultures and other pathology data. They also perform a physical exam to help determine and treat the cause of the problem. Due to the number of surgical and orthopedic infections we treat, wound care is often a component of our treatments.
Common infections can be treated by your personal physician. In cases where an infection is difficult to diagnose or does not respond to treatment, your doctor may refer you to an Infectious Diseases specialist.
Infectious Diseases Associates is a group of consulting physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of infections and infectious diseases. Our staff is committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients. Our physicians are available to our referring physicians twenty four hours a day to provide ID care. It is a privilege to care for our patients at the request of both local and out of town physicians.
Infectious Diseases Associates has 2 separate infusion suites to serve our patients. One suite is for daily administration and the other is for pharmacy dispensing and patient training. Insurance and financial constraints will often determine where outpatient IV administration takes place. All outpatient IV administration is more cost effective than hospitalization. For most patients, it is more convenient as well.
