  • 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.

Outstanding Physician

Several years ago Dr. Vinetz saved my son's life. During my son's hospital stay Dr Vinetz took tremendous care to answer all my questions. He is an extremely caring and gifted physician. more recently, my husband was quite ill and Dr. Vinetz worked him into his schedule and cured him of an infection that had been going on for months. My brother is a physician, I worked with many physicians and I say without hesitation, Dr Vinetz is outstanding!!
