Infectious Disease & Travel Medicine


Print this Page
Board certified physicians Rebecca Shadowen, M.D., Iass El Lakkis, M.D. and Patricia Watson, M.D. with Infectious Disease and Travel Medicine Specialists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of Infectious Disease. In their practice, they diagnoses and manage infections throughout the body, including organs, bones and body systems, caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They are trained in how the body fights infection (immunology), how infections spread (epidemiology) and infection control. Dr. Shadowen, Dr. El Lakkis and Dr. Watson also specialize in Travel Medicine, a focus on preventing infectious disease during travel to foreign countries and avoiding environmental risks.

In addition to treating patients in the office and hospital settings, our physicians are making Infectious Disease services available across the region using telemedicine.

We have moved! We are now located on the third floor of Commonwealth Medical Plaza on The Medical Center campus. See our Contact Us page for more information.
