Infectious Disease Care

Infections are something no one wants to deal with – but they happen. Even the common cold is considered an infectious disease, and millions of Americans get the common cold each year. An infectious disease is spread directly or indirectly from person to person. Such conditions are caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. The type of infectious disease determines the type of treatment needed, and the infectious disease specialists of Firelands Physician Group are trained to diagnose and determine the best course of action for treatment.

Our infectious disease specialists have experience treating the following conditions, among others:

  • Abdominal infections
  • Animal bites
  • Bone and joint infections
  • Central nervous system infections
  • Diarrhoeal disease
  • Hepatitis C
  • Influenza
  • Measles
  • Meningococcal meningitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Rabies
  • Recurrent skin and tissue infections
  • Rubella
  • Tuberculosis

When You Might Need an Infectious Disease Specialist in Sandusky and Nearby

For common infections like a urinary tract infection (UTI) and treatments such as flu care, your primary care physician may be able to adequately diagnose and treat you. It’s when the problem becomes recurrent or treatment is ineffective that you may need to turn to a local infectious disease specialist.

For example, if your young child has a recurrent sinus or ear infection, your pediatrician may work with an infectious disease specialist or refer you and your child to a local infectious disease specialist to adequately treat the health problem.

The infectious disease doctors of Firelands Physician Group will work with you and your primary care physician, emergency department or urgent care facility to create the necessary treatment plan to get you well again. We also work with a variety of medical professionals across the Firelands Regional Health System for travel medicine and infectious disease prevention measures, such as vaccines and screening. Your health and safety are important to all of us.
