Infectious Diseases

About Us

The Section of Infectious Diseases, part of the Department of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, offers inpatient and outpatient consultative services in all aspects of infectious diseases.

Our award-winning faculty provides excellent patient care, trains the next generation of infectious disease specialists, conducts research that advances our knowledge of infectious diseases, and translates that knowledge to clinical care.

We see patients referred from all over the world with all types of infections, including inpatient consultations for those with severe infections related to complications from other diseases or surgical procedures, and outpatients with infections that are difficult to diagnose and treat.

We deliver excellent care through state-of-the-art treatments and a heartfelt compassion for each individual we treat. Through our computerized medical record system, we can instantly communicate with other specialists involved with each patient, improving collaboration and the quality of care delivered. We also offer an onsite infusion center, making intravenous antibiotic therapy easy and convenient for our patients.
