Infectious Disease Care

Summa Health Infectious Disease treats a broad spectrum of infectious diseases, including COVID-19 and influenza.

Infectious Disease Specialists

Summa Health Infectious Disease doctors are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to our patients at locations in Akron and Barberton.

An infectious disease specialist treats a wide range of serious and difficult-to-diagnose bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic infections. This includes bloodstream infections and complex or rare conditions caused by emerging pathogens and multidrug-resistant microbes.

Many infectious disease issues are related to other medical conditions or procedures. Summa Health infectious disease doctors work closely with physicians in other specialty areas – such as corporate health, pulmonary and cardiovascular –  to help ensure the best treatments and outcomes.
