Brief Answer: Infectious disease specialist Detailed Answer: Hello, It is better to consult either infectious disease specialist or internal medicine specialist A leading experienced Infectious disease specialist or Internal medicine Specialist can be found in both Apollo Hospitals, Fortis Healthcare Limited Hospital, or Bangalore medical college. It is best to consult HOD (Head of Department) of either of these Hospitals in concerned department, whichever is close to your Home. You may take an appointment with HOD Internal medicine or Infectious disease specialist best in morning 8:00AM on monday.
