Specialties

Infectious Disease and Epidemiology Associates (IDEA) is a private medical group based in Omaha, NE, which provides high-quality infectious disease care for Omaha, east-central Nebraska and western Iowa. Our office is located at Lakeside Hospital. We provide hospital consultative services at the Nebraska Medical Center, Nebraska Orthopedic Hospital, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and most CHI Health hospitals in the Omaha area.

Our practice addresses a wide variety of infectious conditions, including post-surgical infections, MRSA and other Staph infections, C. difficile colitis, osteomyelitis (bone and joint infections), bloodstream infections, and fungal and parasitic infections.

We have a Travel Clinic for persons visiting foreign countries with an increased risk for infections. We provide a full array of vaccinations, including yellow fever, typhoid, hepatitis A and B and meningococcal vaccines, and prescribe antibiotics for diarrhea illnesses and malaria prevention when necessary.

An Infusion Center is present in our Lakeside office, so we can provide intravenous antibiotic therapy and other infusions in a comfortable and well-supervised setting.

Infectious conditions such as MRSA, C. difficile, West Nile virus, and other diseases are unfortunately increasing in frequency. The increasing complexity of medical treatments and surgeries means that more persons will be at risk for contracting a serious infection. Given the complicated issues involved and the risks of inadequate treatment, we feel it is imperative that patients have access to experts who understand their conditions and can best address them.

While the majority of our appointments are requested by referrals from other physicians, we do see many patients without a referral if appropriate. Please contact our office at 402-758-5240 if you have questions or wish to schedule an appointment.
