In brief: Treats infections

An id specialist diagnoses and treats all infections caused by micro-organisms including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and parasites.
We treat infections of every organ in the body. Examples include pneumonia, pyelonephritis, osteomyelitis(bone infections), hiv/aids, meningitis, amoebic dysentery etc. Etc. Some id docs mainly do hospital consultations while some have office practices.
