Wayne Health's approach to treatment

Wayne Health Infectious Disease specialists have years of experience and extensive knowledge of infectious diseases. We offer the latest prevention and treatment options. We also use a team approach to treatment by conducting a weekly conference that includes Infectious Diseases grand rounds (city-wide meetings with case presentations) and also hold a monthly research conference to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information to provide the best treatment for our patients.
