Infectious diseases are conditions caused by microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Infectious Disease physicians are experts in infections throughout the body; they aid and maintain immunology (how the body fights infection), epidemiology (how infections spread), and infection control. Dr. Arash Poursina provides his patients with disease control initiatives and key antibiotic management programs. If you need treatment for an acute or chronic disease, you are assured the highest quality care and service by Dr. Poursina.
Dr. Poursina interests are infection prevention, orthopedic infections, infections in transplant/Immune compromised patients, antimicrobial stewardship and molecular diagnostics. He is also trained to educate patients traveling to places around the world that have a high rate of infectious diseases. Prevention is accomplished through environmental approaches, prophylactic antibiotics, and most importantly, vaccines. Treatment involves the use of antimicrobial medications, medicine capable of destroying or slowing the growth of disease-causing organisms.
