Infectious Disease Specialists
Infectious disease (ID) specialists are board-certified physicians who have completed sub-specialty training in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses caused by microorganisms. ID specialists treat acute and chronic infections. They also act as medical detectives and are often called in to evaluate and oversee challenging cases where an illness is difficult to diagnose, is accompanied by a high fever or has not responded to treatment. ID specialists also see healthy people who plan to travel to foreign countries or locations where infection risk may be high. In these cases, ID specialists determine whether immunizations or other preventative measures are necessary to protect travelers from disease.
