What kinds of patients and cases do ID specialists treat?
ID Specialists diagnose and treat conditions resulting from all types of infections, including those caused by germs such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. These microscopic organisms penetrate the body's natural barriers and multiply, creating symptoms ranging from sore throat and fever (as in the case of strep throat) to more serious and even deadly problems (such as AIDS or meningitis).
When should I see an ID specialist?
Not all Infectious Diseases require you to see an ID Specialist. Your Primary Care Physician (PCP) can treat many common infections, but your doctor might refer you to an ID specialist in cases where an infection is difficult to diagnose, is accompanied by a high fever or does not respond to treatment. The specialized training and diagnostic tools of the ID Specialist can help determine the cause of your infection and the best approach to treatment.
ID Specialists also see healthy people who plan to travel to foreign countries or locations where the risk of infection is higher. In these cases, ID Specialists can help determine whether special immunizations or other preventive measures are necessary to protect travelers from disease.
