TRAVEL MEDICINE

Traveling abroad?

Are you planning a trip to an area where there is a an increased risk of disease, infection, or travel associated illnesses? 

Consult our specialists to provide special insight in determining if any immunizations or safety precautions are necessary to help you return in good health.

There are many potential hazards that the traveler faces when journeying to areas outside of the U.S.A. Certain infections can be prevented with the appropriate use of vaccines or medicines.  The risk of other problems such as altitude sickness, jet lag, and food-borne illness may also be greatly reduced with the right advice and prophylactic measures. In some countries vaccination may be required just for entry!

Each and every traveler will be evaluated, interviewed, and treated by one of our Board Certified Infectious Diseases Physicians or Certified Nurse Practitioner  and can be seen within a day or two to get you on your way safely. Ideally, we do advise your appointment should be approximately 4 to 6 weeks prior to departure. But, when circumstances dictate the need to leave on short notice, a pre-travel visit is still required.  We will supply you with official documentation of your vaccinations (” Yellow Card”) and literature outlining needed precautions and places to get medical help when abroad.
