Although your immune system is designed to protect you from invading organisms, it does not always function perfectly. In some cases, it is not able to fight off an infection without some extra help. In other cases, the immune system becomes confused and attacks the body that it is supposed to defend, causing an autoimmune disease. At Mercy Clinic Children’s Infectious Disease and Rheumatology, we are able to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with any of these issues.
Mercy doctors are connected by our advanced electronic health record system, so your most up-to-date medical information is instantly available to the caregivers at each point of medical care. This is a true advantage when your care team is working to treat your child’s illnesses.
