The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society does not provide physician referrals. If you need to find a specialist in pediatric infectious diseases, there are several possibilities.

Your pediatrician or family physician can provide you with the names of local pediatric infectious diseases specialists. You may also contact your county medical society, or the local chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The national office of the AAP (800-433-9016) can provide you with the telephone number for the local or regional AAP chapter in your area.

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) provides a free service to verify credentials of physicians. However, this service requires a paid subscription by physicians, and not all physicians participate in this listing service.

Many pediatric infectious diseases physicians are affiliated with medical schools or children's hospitals. You may also contact the Department of Pediatrics of a local medical school, or the Community Affairs office of a local children's hospital.
