    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.

Horrible Excuse for a Doctor

This doctor was pleasant enough in a fake way, but is completely biased when it comes to disability exams. I am incredibly sick and he said I could return to work full time effective immediately after meeting me for about 20 minutes. This is despite my 5 doctors and a myriad of tests that say otherwise. This guy is just criminal and he should be ashamed of himself. Not sure how he sleeps at night.

Violated standards of professional conduct

This doctor was arrogant, unprofessional and unpleasant to speak to. He has a bias toward finding patients not disabled through Independent Medical Insurance Exams.
