A pediatric infectious disease specialist works with your child's pediatrician to identify the unique signs and symptoms of infectious diseases in babies, children and adolescents.

  • Chronic or recurring infections
  • Prolonged or unexplained fever
  • Congenital infections
  • Hepatitis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Meningitis
  • MRSA infection 
  • Skin and soft tissue infections
  • Bone and joint infection
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Lyme disease, or other tick-borne diseases or infections
