A visit to an infectious disease clinic begins with an infectious disease specialist taking a detailed history of the patient's reported complaints, previous illnesses, and possible travel to exotic countries. This conversation will be the basis in ordering the necessary tests and in making the correct diagnosis. The infectious disease specialist may recommend basic diagnostic tests, will make recommendations for further treatment, and will answer the patient's questions.
When visiting an infectious disease clinic, it is a good idea to bring with you the results of tests and specialist consultations, as well as a possible list of countries the patient has visited.
The infectious disease doctor primarily specializes in treating infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.
In addition, the infectious disease doctor participates in diagnosing and determining the management of epidemic outbreaks or the appearance of diseases in the population despite the vaccinations used, e.g. measles, rubella, tuberculosis.
