Ask your family doctor about getting a referral to see an infectious disease specialist at Peak! Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They’re normally harmless or even helpful, but under certain conditions, some organisms may cause disease. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person (Source: Mayo Clinic).
