Make an Appointment

To request an appointment with a pediatric infectious disease specialist at UNM Health System, call 272-0331. Ask your pediatrician for a referral before you call.

As your children grow, they’ll come in contact with many bacteria, viruses and other microbes. If some of those germs cause infections, UNM Health System can help. Get compassionate care from board-certified pediatricians who understand today’s infectious diseases and their most effective treatments.
