About Infectious Disease
Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG) Infectious Disease specialists practice at Northeast Georgia Medical Center and have expertise in infections of the sinuses, heart, brain, lungs, urinary tract, bowel, bones and pelvic organs. Their extensive training focuses on all kinds of infections, including those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. NGPG infectious disease providers specialize in treating patients with infections due to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the cause of AIDS.
NGPG’s Infectious Disease physicians are board certified in internal medicine as well as infectious diseases. They serve patients by testing for and diagnosing various diseases such as HIV, MRSA, Cellulitis, Encephalitis and other infectious disease disorders.
Our physicians review medical data, including records, X-rays and laboratory reports. They may perform a physical examination, depending on the type of problem. They also counsel healthy people who plan to travel to countries where there is an increased risk of infection.
Laboratory studies are often necessary and may include blood studies and cultures of wounds or body fluids. They may order blood serum studies for antibodies indicating the presence of unusual or uncommon diseases. These studies may help explain the results of studies that a general internist may already have done.
