Infectious diseases need timely treatment and management. Infectious diseases caused by the bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, can cause serious complications or even death. Post-infectious disease management depends mainly on the severity of the disease and other diseases the patient is already suffering from. Dr. Ogunlesi, your Infectious disease doctor, in three locations: Mentor, Ashtabula, and Geneva, OH, provides routine consultation for all infectious diseases at Axelix Health Consulting, Inc. He recommends patients keep their follow-up appointments in the post-infectious disease period to ensure complete or adequate healing.
All adult patients who are admitted to the clinic are seen by a physician within 24 hours. Your infectious disease doctor in Mentor, Ashtabula, and Geneva, OH, works closely with other specialists to ensure appropriate care is given to each patient. New patients are seen in the Mentor practice location or physician pavilion of the hospital. The lab tests required for the newly registered patients are done on-site. After every visit, a visit summary consisting of diagnosis, treatment plan, prescribed medications, imaging/ lab test results, and date of next appointment is given to patients.
Some patients may not respond well to oral antibiotics. They are given IV antibiotics which act faster and usually work in cases where oral antibiotics are ineffective. Wounds need proper examination and care especially in patients with other diseases. If healing is delayed, an infectious disease doctor may order blood tests or culture of the wound. One of the complications in diabetic patients is diabetic foot ulcers. Management is crucial to prevent infection and amputation which may lead to prolonged hospital stay and treatment.
Infections when not treated adequately can spread to other tissues or organs. Don't skip your follow-up consultations until you have completely healed.
