An infectious disease is a transmittable disorder which results from the infection, presence and growth of pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses or parasites in the body. The Infectious Disease Specialists at Saint Vincent Medical Group diagnose and treat infectious diseases including lower respiratory infection, tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis, tetanus and HIV/AIDS.
Because infectious diseases can be transmitted from one person to another, prompt medical attention is extremely important. Infectious Disease practitioners are trained to recognize the characteristics of infectious diseases and administer technologically advanced treatment accordingly, always with compassion and open communication.
Our specialists rely on the latest medical technology to provide outstanding patient care that addresses both immediate and long-term medical needs with individualized treatment that considers the patient’s condition as well as the disease.
