Infectious Diseases


Infectious diseases are caused by micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person. Infectious disease medicine is a subspecialty of internal medicine in which the internists specialize in diagnosing and managing infections.

At RMI, we have highly qualified internists specializing in infectious diseases who treat  many patients on daily basis in their private clinics as well as the inpatients who are admitted in the hospital. 

Although common infections can be treated by general internists and other specialty physicians, internists practicing infectious disease medicine are specialized in this field. They are frequently called upon to help diagnose unknown infections and help manage difficult, unusual, or complicated infections. Infectious disease internists possess extensive understanding of the way in which infections occur in humans and how they present clinically. They also use their knowledge about antimicrobial agents, antibiotic resistance, vaccines, and other immunobiological agents for treatments.
