Local Treatment Brochure

Distance treatment is for those patients who could potentially benefit from phage therapy but are not able to travel for multiple reasons. The clinic can send packages of phages to multiple countries all over the globe and provide necessary recommendations suitable for your treatment.

In order to improve remote clinical service, the Eliava Phage Therapy Center offers consultations online when needed. This allows patients and physicians to communicate in real-time while also maintaining HIPAA, GDPR, PHIPA/PIPEDA, & HITECH compliance. Physicians can assess a patient’s medical history, perform evaluations, and more using interactive medicine. Online consultations are very convenient and make sense if you want to check your medical prescriptions when you don’t have a traveling possibility.
