Treating the infection at its source
St. Luke's Infectious Disease Associates consists of highly specialized physicians who diagnose and treat infections,
such as Lyme disease or influenza, that are caused by microorganisms like
bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They work on a consultation basis
with other physicians to determine which diagnostic tests and treatments
are most appropriate.
Treatments often consist of antibiotic medications given orally or intravenously
to help battle the infection. Treatment plans for outpatient care are
formulated in cooperation with primary care providers and home health
agencies. Patients are seen in the office and hospital settings.
