A child may need a specialist if a general pediatric provider cannot address a relatively detailed concern.  In many cases, the general provider will make this determination and refer your child to an infectious diseases specialist.  When necessary, we are available to provide this specialty consultation.  Please complete the online Patient Registration Form only (not the Medical History Form or Consent Forms).

Examples of cases that may need a pediatric infectious diseases specialist:

  • Recurrent/Prolonged Fever
  • Prolonged Diarrhea
  • Recurrent Streptococcal Pharyngitis
  • PFAPA (Periodic Fever, Aphthous Stomatitis, Pharyngitis, Adenitis) Syndrome
  • Skin Infections Caused by Staphylococcus aureus
  • Tickborne Diseases (e.g., Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever)
  • Infectious Mononucleosis (e.g., Epstein-Barr Virus Infection)
  • Children Born to Mothers with HIV Infection
  • Children Born to Mothers with Syphilis
  • Congenital CMV (Cytomegalovirus) Infection
