Kelowna Infectious Diseases & Tropical Medicine Clinic
At the Kelowna Infectious Diseases & Tropical Medicine Clinic, we focus on the diagnosis and management of diseases in returned travellers (Including those visiting families and friends abroad), refugees, asylum seekers, new immigrants, as well as overseas visitors and tourists.
Any returning traveller with a fever must be first assessed in the emergency department in order to rule out such entities as Malaria, Dengue fever, or Typhoid fever. For all other concerns or diseases, a referral is required by your general practitioner or your family physician.
Dr. Issa Ephtimios is running the service with support from Dr. Boi Masake. Both physicians are certified in tropical medicine and have gained extensive education in this field.
