Infectious Disease

At SSM Health, our Infectious Disease (ID) specialists provide comprehensive care for patients who need treatment for advanced or challenging infections of the body.

Our specialists are trained in Internal Medicine, and have additional expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of infections. Their expertise includes specialized knowledge about how the body fights infection, how infections spread and the use of antibiotics and their possible adverse effects. They can also help you prepare for foreign travel by providing the necessary immunizations and discussing the potential health risks at your destination.

Contact your primary care doctor for a referral to one of our specialists. Our infectious disease providers will work closely with referring providers to coordinate consultation, treatment and follow-up.
