Infectious Disease Clinic

We see and provide outpatient care for a full spectrum of infectious diseases including (but not limited to) travel-related illnesses,  infections in immunocompromised hosts, recurrent urinary tract infections, osteomyelitis, tuberculosis, MRSA and sexually transmitted infections. We also provide PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) for HIV.

Please call (716) 278-4739 to schedule an appointment.

Hepatitis C Clinic

Anyone born between 1945 and 1965 should be screened for hepatitis C, as should current or former injection drug users.  A screening test is also recommended for anyone who was ever on long-term hemodialysis, has tested positive for HIV, received blood from a donor who later tested positive for hepatitis C, or who received a transfusion of blood, blood components or an organ transplant before July 1992.

While appointments are recommended, walk-ins for a hepatitis C consultation are welcome most Wednesdays between 8:30-11:30 a.m. at our Niagara Wellness Connection Center.  To schedule an appointment, please call (716) 278-4820.
