Microbiology is the study of living organisms or microbes which are invisible to our naked eyes. These organisms include viruses, bacteria, algae, fungi, molds, and protozoa. Hence, microbiologists are specialist doctors which diagnose, treat, and prevent many types of infections. Tree Top Hospital’s Microbiology specialty utilizes leading laboratory equipment to provide our Guests with results which are precise and can be produced rapidly.

What do microbiologist doctors do?

These professionals provide excellent guidance and how to treat and prevent various infections. They advise experts on how to combat infections, the most suitable methods to collect and identify a possible infection and conduct precise tests to determine the results.
