Compassionate Care for Patients with Infectious Diseases

Your Primary Care Physician can treat most common infections, but Infectious Disease Specialists are expertly equipped to treat communicable diseases such as meningitis, bone infections, heart infections, post-operative infections, HIV-AIDS, Lyme disease, and hepatitis. That’s why Central Ohio Primary Care has two Infectious Disease offices with seven board certified Infectious Disease physicians on staff.
While some infections are difficult to avoid, others are preventable with a few easy steps. Immunizations are one example. COPC recommends a vaccination regime for you and your children.
Treatment for an infectious disease often consists of antibiotics. Once you have been diagnosed, these medicines may be easily administered in the physician’s office, reducing the need for hospital admissions.
Talk to your Primary Care Physician if you have any questions about visiting an Infectious Disease Specialist. They are your first resource when you have concerns about infection.
