If you are referred to one of our infectious disease specialists, you can expect them to conduct a physical exam and discuss your medical history. They’ll ask you questions about your symptoms, medications, and your environment.

You will likely need testing to help diagnose your condition and determine the appropriate treatment. You may need:

  • Blood tests
  • Imaging tests such as X-Ray, MRI, or CT scans
  • Spinal tap (lumbar puncture)
  • Stool sample tests
  • Throat swabs
  • Tissue biopsies
  • Urine tests
  • IV Services (Infusion Center) for specific conditions (subject to insurance approval)

Referrals & Precertification


Insurers often require a physician referral prior to your visit to Knoxville Infectious Disease Consultants. Patients who feel they would benefit from outpatient infectious disease consultation must request a referral from their PCP or other provider directly involved in the management of the condition of concern. A KIDC physician will review your records to determine if outpatient evaluation is needed.


If a test or procedure is ordered by a Knoxville Infectious Disease Consultants provider, our staff will obtain a necessary precertification on your behalf. Precertification for any tests or procedures ordered by your own primary care physician is the responsibility of your primary care provider’s office.

Patient Survey
