I'm a clinical microbiologist here at Rush. And so let's say you have a sore throat, and your doctor's trying to figure out what's causing your throat to hurt. He'll call me, and I'll suggest to him - based on the symptoms that he describes - that, Oh. Maybe your patient has Group A strep throat. So while I'm not directly looking after you, I am helping your doctor to look after you better. My particular interest and specialty is in travel and tropical-related infections. If you do unfortunately end up falling ill with something that you acquire in one of your visits overseas, or if you're living overseas, what we try and do is see you, and try and figure out what sort of infection you may have acquired, make appropriate diagnostic recommendations, and treat those important travel-related infections.
