You work to keep your family disease free by practicing good hygiene, frequently washing your hands and getting vaccinated. Unfortunately, some infections are unavoidable. Infectious diseases can come in many shapes and forms, so our specialists are here to help diagnose, treat and get you back on your feet ASAP.

Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. They can be as common as a cold or as unique as meningitis or Coronavirus. 

At Adena, our experienced infectious disease providers have diagnosed and treated an endless range of cases and are here to help you navigate the best care to get you back to good health. Although infectious diseases can most often be treated with antibiotics or other medications, they can be more serious if left untreated. Whether you or someone in your family suffers from a chronic infection or an immune deficiency, our infectious disease experts are close to home with the care you need to help get you back on the path to good health as quickly as possible.
