Staying free from infection

Infectious disease specialists at Northern Arizona Healthcare diagnose and treat complex infections. Typically, these infections can be accompanied by a high fever or may not respond to normal treatment.

These infections are often transmitted from person to person; through insect or animal bites; through contaminated food or water; or by exposure to harmful organisms in the environment.
