Infectious disease specialists are experts in diagnosing and treating medical conditions caused by bacteria, viruses, fungal organisms, parasites and other microorganisms. The Portland Clinic’s infectious disease physician consults with your primary care provider and other specialists when you have an infection that is difficult to diagnose or treat.
Bacterial infections: diagnosis and treatment of MRSA, C. difficile infection, recurrent urinary tract infections, endocarditis, bone and joint infections, tuberculosis and other bacterial infections
Hospital-acquired infections: treatment and follow-up, including antibiotic infusion and coordination of care
Invasive fungal infections: diagnosis and treatment
Travel-related illnesses: evaluation and treatment, including vaccination concerns
Fevers of unknown origin (FUO): evaluation
HIV: diagnosis, treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for individuals at risk
To ensure collaborative care and a meaningful visit, a referral is required from your primary care provider, surgeon or specialist for all services except HIV care. Ideally, referrals should include your medical history, lab reports and results of any cultures or tests. For HIV care, please contact us directly.
