TRAVEL MEDICINE

Our patients are often surprised to learn that roughly 70 percent of travelers end up with a travel-related illness! That’s a very high percentage. It certainly got our attention, and that’s why we offer travel medicine consultations.

The good news is that you can greatly reduce your chances of picking up a travel-related illness with proper vaccinations and a few simple precautions. We continually keep abreast of the constantly changing health situations around the world and are here to share this information with you!

The World Health Organization encourages travelers to consult a travel medicine medical doctor 4 to 6 weeks prior to departure.
