- 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 patient of Dr. Ivan. He is a remarkable doctor. Not only did he treat me for an infection that was attacking my body, but he is by far the most caring, compassionate doctor I have ever known in my 50+ years. He cares about the person...not a "patient". Most times, you get in and out of your scheduled appointment promptly, but every once in a while you might have to wait just a bit longer. But realize why...because you aren't a number to Dr Ivan. He isn't going to run into the exam room, see you for 2 or 3 minutes and run out. He genuinely listens to you and personally examines you. He cares and sometimes that means a little longer wait...but it's worth it.
There was a feeling of peace, when I entered the office. After I met Dr. Ivan and his assistant, I knew I was in good hands. All of the nurses were pleasant and made everyone comfortable. All front personnel were kind and informative- always called me by my name. God Bless all of you and the patients.
With the multiple health issues I have had over the past several years, I have never been treated by someone with this much empathy and care for people. He truly is gifted and was born to do what he does. His office staff are equally nice and caring. Thank you Gwen, Linda and the other girls. You all enhance what doctor Ivan does for his community.
