Infectious diseases are caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Infectious disease can spread in a variety of ways – from person to person, through animal or insect bites or from contaminated food or water. Signs and symptoms vary, but often include fever and fatigue. Mild infections may respond to rest and home remedies, while some life-threatening infections may require hospitalization.

Through the use of vaccines, antibiotics and other treatments, we create a personalized plan to meet your specific care needs.
