International travel medicine

International travel, whether for business, leisure or personal reasons, may require special vaccinations and other health preparations before your departure. These include preventive measures against infectious diseases.

Our travel medicine doctors can help with this care and education. They will:

  • Administer any necessary travel immunizations to help prevent illness
  • Assess your medical needs based on your travel location
  • Educate you about medications and travel healthcare
  • Provide detailed advice to help minimize travel-related health risks

Sepsis treatment

Sepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection. It can rapidly progress and cause tissue damage, organ failure and unfortunately, even death. This makes it very important to get sepsis diagnosed and begin treatment right away.

If you have sepsis, you are almost always treated in an emergency room (ER), and severe cases require a hospital stay. It is important that a hospital quickly identifies sepsis, and begins administering antibiotics.


When to see an infectious disease physician

If you have an infection, you may not necessarily need to see an infectious disease specialist. Your primary doctor will make the decision about whether or not you need to be referred to a specialist.
