At Faebris, it is our mission to provide specialty medical services and
disease-state education to the community.
We specialize in infectious diseases,
with a particular emphasis on HIV/AIDS.
Our goal is to inform our community of relevant preventive measures to preserve and promote
good health and to provide compassionate medical treatment for all infectious diseases.
Our name, Faebris, is derived from the ancient Roman goddess, Febris, who protected people from fever and dispelled sickness due to infection. There were temples in Rome dedicated to her. People would make offerings at the altars of her temples in hopes of being cured of their infectious diseases. The word, fever, evolved from her name.
