I was referred to Dr. Echaiz' infectious disease clinic for 2 reasons: 1. I had a positive culture for MRSA +! in a post-operative wound on my belly, and 2. I am allergic to many antibiotics. Fortunately, this doctor was able to set my mind at ease by suggesting no oral antibiotics, using a topical antibiotic more frequently, and by referring me to an allergist to see if my early childhood antibiotic allergies were still active.

Doctor could not explain between an infection or a bacteria and who should treat it. I believe I should have been referred to a dermatologist for my skin infection
