Infectious disease

Infectious disease is the medical specialty practiced by doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of complex infections, whether caused by bacteria, virus, fungus, or other infectous agent. They treat people who have chronic (long-term) infections or disorders such as HIV or tuberculosis. Some may have a focus of their practice such as patients with HIV or tropical diseases. Before you consult with a infection disease specialist, it is good to know if he has a focus of practice within his specialty, and if he is certified by the Sociedade Brasileira de Infectologia, which is the official organization recognized by the Associação Médica Brasiliera.

ProcuraMed does not schedule appointments and does not interfere or intervene in the doctor-patient relationship. It is the responsibility of the patient to contact the doctor, clinic, or hospital of his choice.
