Infectious Disease Care

Dr. Jathavedam talking to a female patient

At Leonia Medical Associates, our practice includes infectious disease specialists,  internal medicine physicians who subspecialize in the diagnosis and treatment of infections, including bacterial, viral, fungal, parasitic, and tropical diseases.

We treat common infections as well as difficult, resistant infections that may complicate hospitalization or surgery.

Hepatitis Management

Hepatitis is a viral infection that affects the liver. If you’re living with hepatitis B or hepatitis C, we can provide care to improve your quality of life.

HIV Management

HIV is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system. If you are HIV-positive, we can help you coordinate treatments and enjoy a full life.

Treatment of Immunocompromised Patients

Certain health conditions, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s disease, make it harder for the body’s immune system to fight off other infections. Undergoing organ transplantation and being treated for cancer with chemotherapy and radiation can also cause problems with immunity.

Travel Consultation and Immunizations

To ensure your travel experiences are safe and enjoyable, we offer pre-trip travel counseling. Based on your travel plans, we will let you know about appropriate vaccinations and preventive medications to reduce your risk of illness. We recommend booking the consultation at least two to three months in advance of your trip.
