Infectious diseases are caused by microscopic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites, and can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Many infectious diseases, such as colds, will resolve on their own and are preventable with handwashing, vaccinations and other simple measures. Other infectious diseases are treated with antibiotics, antivirals and other medications.
Doylestown Health's board-certified infectious disease physicians provide specialty expertise to primary care physicians (PCP), internal and family medicine physicians, affiliates such as Pine Run Retirement Community, and other medical professionals in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for infectious diseases.
To schedule an appointment with a Doylestown Health Infectious Disease specialist, contact your primary care provider to make a referral.
