Fulton County Medical Center Specialty Services staff has welcomed infectious disease physician Dr. Sheikh Parviz to their list of specialists. Dr. Parviz completed his professional degree at The Aga Khan University, Karachi Sindh, Pakistan. He completed his internship, as well as his residency at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine, Chicago, Ill. He finished his fellowship at West Virginia University, Morgantown, W.Va., and is American board certified in internal medicine and infectious disease. Dr. Parviz has been practicing medicine in the Chambersburg and Waynesboro area since 2008 and is thrilled to be able to expand his current practice to Fulton County beginning in April.

Infectious disease physicians have expertise in a number of infections, including infections of the sinuses, heart, brain, lungs, urinary tract, bowel, bones and pelvic organs. Their extensive training focuses on all kinds of infections, including those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They work hand in hand with other physicians to treat patients with infectious diseases and have extensive knowledge of antibiotics.

They rely heavily on clinical acumen along with supportive lab tests, X-rays and various reports in order to prescribe a course of treatment for their patients.

Dr. Parviz will begin seeing patients every other Saturday morning beginning May 7, 2011, at Fulton County Medical Center campus in the Specialty Services portion of the building. For more information call 717-485-6110, or ask your physician how to begin seeing Dr. Parviz here in Fulton County.
