Takoma Hospital Opens Infectious Disease Clinic

Takoma Regional Hospital will open an infectious disease clinic on the hospital's campus on Wednesday, Feb. 15.

Dr. Halim Abou-Faycal, who is board-certified in infectious diseases and internal medicine, will provide care for patients diagnosed with MRSA, HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, and transplant-related infections.

The infectious disease clinic will be located at 1021 Coolidge St., Suite 3, in the Takoma Medical Office Building North.

To schedule an appointment, call 636-0702.

"I will treat infections due to bacteria, fungi, viruses or parasites," Dr. Abou-Faycal said. "This includes those with endocarditis and patients with resistant infections."

A "Traveler's Clinic" also will be offered, providing immunizations, medications and disease-risk information for those embarking on international travel, as well as treatment for travel-related infections.

A news release stated that Dr. Abou-Faycal graduated from medical school at Lebanese University of Beirut, and completed his internal medicine internship and residency at several university hospitals, including the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Johnson City.

He completed his infectious-disease fellowship at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, receiving special training in bone-marrow infections and solid-organ transplant infections.

Dr. Abou-Faycal was an East Tennessee State University "Harrison Scholar" for two consecutive years, an award given to those who score the highest in the board review exams.

He also was chairman of infection control and medical director of the Infectious Diseases Department at St. Edwards Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith, Ark.

Dr. Abou-Faycal lives in Johnson City with his wife, Lisa, and their four-year-old twins, Joe and Maya. He enjoys hunting and fishing in his leisure time.
