Dr. Dean L Rackleff has the following 2 specialties
- Infectious Disease
An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I am a local Paramedic and I was referred to his office. I contacted them to schedule getting a chicken pox vaccine booster (I have never had the chicken pox) and a measles booster, due to the recent outbreak out west. I informed the doctor that I see tons of sick people at my job and enter hospitals all the time and many ambulances, way increasing my risk of contracting either over the normal publics day to day lives. He refused to give me either vaccine. This doctor is horrible and does not care about his patients.
