Infectious Diseases

We have the international experience and expertise you are looking for.

 

While many common infections can be treated by a primary care physician, there are many others – some rare, some difficult to diagnose, and even some that are life-threatening – that require a physician who is specially trained in infectious diseases. 

Our team of infectious disease specialists are hospital based, seeing patients at Tampa General Hospital, Florida Hospital-Tampa, and Moffitt Cancer Center. 

They are specially trained to diagnose and provide a full spectrum of care for infectious diseases, including bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic infections, and can provide intensive management of infectious diseases through state-of-the-art care and access to advancements in infectious disease research.

You can turn to our ID team when:

an infection is difficult to diagnose
an infection is accompanied by a high fever
a patient does not respond to treatment
a healthy person plans to travel to a foreign country or a location where infection risk is higher
treating illnesses becomes a part of a patient's overall care, for example, a patient with HIV/AIDS
