Infectious Diseases, Tropical Medicine & International Travel Clinic

We all get sick sometimes, even despite the best preventive care and hygiene. Most common illnesses and infections can be treated by primary care doctors—pediatricians, internists, or family medicine specialists—but some require the care of one of our Carilion Clinic infectious disease specialists.

Our board-certified specialists are trained to diagnose and manage any disease caused by bacteria, virus, fungus or parasites. We also care for people with underlying immunological disorders, who have a hard time fighting illnesses and infections on their own.

We’re known for our treatment of MRSA, hepatitis C, HIV, tuberculosis, bone and joint infections and tropical diseases, and we stay on the cutting edge of diagnosis and treatment (with our accredited training program) so there’s no need for you to travel outside of western Virginia for top-tier infectious disease management.
