Infectious Disease Clinic
Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 19.3
million people see physicians for parasitic and infectious diseases —
which may be deadly without treatment. Caused by germs that can be found
in air, soil and water, these serious infections may often be prevented
through vaccines, proper hand washing and medication. But if you're
one of the many who contracts one, the IVCH Infectious Disease Clinic
can provide treatment to cure or manage your disease.
Hussein Zaioor, MD, an infectious diseases specialist, is a doctor of internal medicine who
is qualified as an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious
diseases. Along with Stephanie Spanos, RN, the two will identify and treat
your disease. Be sure to ask for a referral if you have a fever or infection
— whether viral or bacterial — that is not improving, especially
if you have a chronic condition like a bone infection, HIV or Hepatitis.
Tips for Avoiding Infectious Diseases
- Take recommended vaccinations
- Utilize proper hand washing techniques
- Avoid exposure to illness when possible
- Don't engage in risky sexual behavior
- Seek treatment early, rather than later
