The highly regarded practice of leading infectious disease specialists Dr. Manal Youssef-Bessler and Dr. Frantz Pierre-Louis has estab-
lished a stellar reputation for patient-focused, compassionate care. Patients benefit from individualized, targeted treatment regimens in
which antimicrobials are used cautiously and appropriately, and they receive thorough education and counseling concerning their disease
process. “We enjoy treating a variety of infections,” says Dr. Youssef-Bessler. “We specialize in management of severe sepsis, diabetic
wound infections, tick borne disorders such as Lyme disease, viral hepatitis B and C, HIV and tropical infections.”
Often called upon for extremely complicated and unusual cases, the doctors recently identified and diagnosed a rare case of Lassa fever
in a New Jersey patient. Their rapid diagnosis, which prevented potential exposure of the virus to others, as well as their knowledge and
professionalism, earned them compliments from the CDC, state health department and hospital o;cials.
Their colleagues include Drs. Janet Lin-Torre, Marjut Kokkola-Korpela and Michael Jerome and physician assistant Donna Heinzen. “We’re
gratified to be the practice of choice for our community patients and many area physicians and their families,” says Dr. Youssef-Bessler.
