In this clinic, you will interact with an infectious disease physician and clinical pharmacologists specializing in infectious diseases. This clinic focuses on two different goals: the first is to help you manage your infectious disease patients, and the second is to provide evidence-based antibiotic stewardship through optimizing antibiotic usage thus reducing resistance and improving pharmacy bottom line.

Dr. Krasner enjoys being able to help with any patients or questions you may have! Please feel free to contact him at (775) 830-5770 or with anything you'd like to ask.

We also invite you to visit the Nevada Antimicrobial Stewardship Program website to learn more about their work to support antibiotic stewardship in Nevada.
