Infectious disease specialists
Israeli infectious disease doctors specialize in the treatment of infectious diseases and clinical trials.
We cooperate with leading Israeli infectious disease doctors. Our physicians will determine the likelihood of infection, its severity, nature, taking into account the symptoms, their duration and severity, concomitant and past illnesses, the results of tests performed in your country, medications taken, allergies and social history.
After this, an examination and physical examination will be carried out – measuring temperature, pulse, blood pressure and respiratory rate, examination for a rash or enlarged lymph nodes, examination of the chest and abdomen.
Examinations may also include blood tests, microscopic analysis, culture and sensitivity of blood, analysis of sputum, urine, stool, joint fluid, smears from a wound, cerebrospinal fluid, etc., as indicated by the physician.
Visual tests include x-ray, CT, ultrasound, or MRI.
