TUBERCULOSIS - Cobb & Douglas Public Health

 

The Cobb & Douglas Public Health TB Clinic has moved!  
We are now located in the Marietta Health Center “Building B” – 1738 County Services Parkway (next door to Building A on the Marietta Health Center Campus).

The Tuberculosis (TB) Program has the ultimate responsibility for ensuring appropriate TB management in the district.  It primarily provides TB surveillance, which includes case finding, case reporting, case management and contact investigations using the principals of epidemiology.  It also ensures that active TB cases and clients with Latent TB Infection (LTBI) are treated and monitored medically.  The Program also provides Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) , which is the standard of care in Georgia for TB patients to ensure completion of therapy.  DOT entails the direct observation of patient’s self-administering TB medications.  All of these activities are crucial to reaching the goal of TB prevention and control in Cobb and Douglas Counties. The Tuberculosis clinic at Cobb & Douglas Public Health offers the following services:

  • QuantiFeron (QFT)
  • Tuberculin Skin Test (TST)
  • Chest X-rays
  • X-ray interpretation

Tuberculosis FAQ’s

What is Tuberculosis (TB)?

Tuberculosis, commonly referred to as TB, is a disease caused by bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This bacterial disease usually attacks the lungs but, can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal.

What are the symptoms of TB?

Symptoms of TB include: fever, weight loss, hemoptysis (coughing up blood), and weakness or fatigue.  If you experience two or more symptoms over an extended period of time, please contact your healthcare provider. (NOTE: These symptoms can also be associated with other illnesses.)

If I have a positive reaction to the TST does that mean I have TB?

No, a positive reaction to the TST indicates that at some point in time you were exposed to someone with active tuberculosis.

Why is my school or employer requesting a TST?

Schools and employers will sometimes require this test to determine if you have been exposed to tuberculosis prior to enrollment or employment.

I am a resident of another county; does your program provide services for other counties?

Yes, we do provide most services to residents of other counties, including but not limited to, TST, chest x-rays and x-ray interpretations. Please contact your local health department for more information on services offered to residents of other counties.
