ID and Other Questions
A provider that has had additional training to treat complicated conditions. For Physicians this is a 2 – 3 year period after finishing Internal Medicine training. They commonly deal with fungal infections, parasitic, Specific viral conditions and complicated bacterial infections.
Stewardship is one of the core values of infectious disease providers. They work to ensure the most appropriate antibiotic for the correct amount of time. Unlike other medications like blood pressure medication or pain medication, Antibiotic overuse hurts patients, hospital and communities. All of our ID providers are involved in some capacity with the hospital stewardship where they work.
Infectious disease providers are able to give specific recommendations on vaccines and prophylactic measures depending on what part of the world you’re going and what activities you will be performing. IF you’d like to have a travel evaluation feel free to make an appointment with our office staff.
The virus that causes Autoimmune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), our providers are trained or Certified by AAHIVM (American Association of HIV Medicine). Patients that have HIV properly managed have a lifespan and quality of life the same as people without HIV diagnosis. Feel free to contact one of our providers for an appointment.
Staph Aureus is a bacterium that normally lives in the skin of most people. At times these bacteria may find a portal of entry and cause chaos in the body of their host. Depending on the availability of antibiotics to treat this organism it can be divided in Methicillin resistant Staph Aureus (less options) and Methicillin Susceptible Staph Aureus (more options)
It’s an infection in the inner lining of the heart which commonly involves the heart valves. Without treatment, infectious endocarditis has a 100% mortality rate. On average, patients need to be diagnosed in the hospital and followed by a specialist post hospitalization.
It is an unusual infection caused by a very slow growing bacteria. It is unclear why some people have the disease, but it can be treated with a cocktail of antibiotics. Evaluation with an ID provider should be the first step since not all diagnosed cases may need to be treated. On average, treatment is more than 12 months
Osteo-(bone)-myelitis is deep seated infection in the bone that commonly requires 4 weeks or more of treatment. Success rates for Osteomyelitis are dependent on patient factors, and bacterial factors. In our area foot ulcers are probably the most common route of osteomyelitis.
Disease cause by SARS-CoV-2 virus that has affected the world which is why it’s called a pandemic. Disinformation about this virus is rampant. In Regional Clinic we follow evidence-based medicine and recommend our patients to be vaccinated + booster
Some people develop a chronic condition of this virus called “long covid” or post covid syndrome. Research is still ongoing to understand this disease presentation and we are still actively looking for potential effective treatment.
This disease is spread through tick bites by a spirochete that may affect multiple systems (Central Nervous, Muscle, Joints, Heart). After the initial infection, some patients may persist having symptoms. Multiple studies have attempted to answer if additional antibiotics help in this condition. The best level of evidence indicates that antibiotics have no role to play after the initial infection.
Providers that offer prolonged antibiotic cocktails for this condition are doing it based on their personal experience. The Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) and American College of Physicians (ACP) do not encourage/vouch these types of treatments.
