• Wellmont Medical Associates Infectious Disease

    From testing to treatment – turn to Wellmont for infectious disease care.

    When infections are difficult to diagnose or treat, Wellmont Medical Associates offers an infectious disease program to help determine the best treatment approach.

    What is an infectious disease doctor?

    Infectious disease specialists – sometimes called ID specialists – are experts in the diagnostic tools, treatment and management of infections, especially those that aren’t commonly treated by primary care providers. They have extensive training in the principles of epidemiology and transmission of infections.

    Conditions treated

    Infectious disease doctors can assist those who have:

    • Illnesses that resist or don’t respond to standard treatments
    • Unusual infections that are difficult to diagnose
    • Infections accompanied by unusually high fevers
    • Bone and joint infections
    • Conditions requiring ongoing treatment, such as Lyme disease, HIV, AIDS, and chronic hepatitis B and C

    Foreign travel preparation

    If you have plans to travel abroad to a country where infection risks are higher, an infectious disease specialist can help prepare you for your trip.

    After reviewing your travel plans and personal health history, they will advise you on what vaccinations you’ll need and provide prescriptions, as well as advice on how to stay healthy while you’re away.
