Infectious Disease

Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many of these organisms are normally harmless or even helpful, but under certain conditions, they may cause disease.

The infectious disease specialists at Indian River Medical Center are trained to recognize, diagnose, contain, and treat both simple and complex infectious diseases.

Whether a patient is ill and confined to the hospital or an outpatient seeking consultation, the physicians at IRMC are an invaluable asset in helping patients affected by an infectious disease regain their health.
