Parasitic diseases have many clinical manifestations, and can often proceed under the guise of other diseases. Diagnosis of parasitic diseases is a complex, multifaceted search that requires a comprehensive clinical, instrumental and laboratory examination. Our activity always combines the continuity of the classical parasitological school and the use of modern methods of research, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of parasitic and tropical diseases. Our specialist has many years of experience and has a doctorate in medical sciences.
A parasitologist is an infectious disease doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of parasitic diseases caused by protozoa, helminths (worms), insects.
Consultation with a parasitologist may be required if you have the following symptoms:
• rash on the body
• high temperature, fever
• diarrhea mixed with mucus or blood
• detection of helminths or insects in feces, sputum and other biological fluids and tissues.
Reception of a parasitologist does not require preliminary preparation. If a parasite is found in feces and other parts of the body, it is necessary to save this biological material for laboratory research.
At the reception, the parasitologist interviews the patient, collects complaints, is interested in contacts with potentially sick people and animals, trips abroad, to nature. Conducts a general clinical examination of the patient.
If necessary, additional studies are carried out:
• clinical blood test
• analyzes of feces and urine
• serological tests for parasitic infections
• microscopy of smears and blood drops, microscopy of other types of biological material
• ultrasound of the abdominal organs.
In each case, an individual approach is used depending on the complaints and test results.
