Our team provides evaluation and treatment for patients from birth through 21 years of age with complex, unusual, severe, or persistent infections. We also provide travel medicine and foreign adoption evaluations. Please be advised that pre-travel appointments should take place at least one month prior to planned travel. Required travel vaccines may also have to be ordered; thus, two visits may be required.
