Douglas MacQueen, MD
Infectious Disease

Dr. MacQueen sees his job as an Infectious Disease specialist as a privilege in which he helps to diagnose, treat, and care for patients who have complicated infections.  He also assists in determining what could cause a patient’s symptoms and if that person doesn’t have an infection.

Dr. MacQueen is the Medical Director of Cayuga Medical Center’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and the Infection Prevention Program.  He also serves as the Tuberculosis Consultant for the Tompkins County and Cayuga County Departments of Health, as he treats patients in both counties with active and inactive cases of tuberculosis. His job allows him to collaborate with the Infectious Diseases division at Weill Cornell Medical College where he has an appointment as Clinical Instructor. Dr. MacQueen attended college in Ithaca and is happy to be back here raising his son. In his free time he enjoys hiking, fishing, and hunting.
