The Dignity Health Medical Group (DHMG) Infectious Disease department at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is dedicated to serving people with suspected or known infections.

Infectious disease at DHMG

All of Dignity Health Medical Group’s infectious disease physicians are fellowship trained and either boardcertified or working towards their board certification. When you choose a physician who is certified, you can be confident he or she meets nationally recognized standards for education, knowledge, experience and skills to provide high quality care in a specific medical specialty, above and beyond basic medical licensure.

When you choose our team for your care, you will be treated by highly experienced infectious disease experts. Our specialists diagnose and treat both broad infections, such as bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic infections, as well as specific infections such as HIV/AIDS.

  • Chronic lung or pulmonary infections
  • Fungal infections (excluding mold exposure)
