Planning a trip? Be prepared. One in four travelers report an illness or other health problem while traveling. You can significantly reduce your risk of illness abroad with a pre-travel consultation.
Pre-travel appointments should be made at least one month before traveling to your destination. You will be advised on the most current travel and health information. The most appropriate immunizations and travel medications will be recommended based on your destination, duration of travel, activities, and medical conditions. You will receive your immunizations at the time of your pre-travel appointment along with a comprehensive booklet of travel risks and advice.
Our board-certified infectious disease specialists will evaluate and treat illnesses that you may develop while traveling. Should you develop acute or persistent symptoms after returning home, such as fevers above 101° F, our healthcare providers can evaluate you for evidence of travel-related diseases. Long-term travelers are more likely to benefit from routine follow-up medical evaluation. The extent of your work-up will depend on your travel itinerary, history of disease while traveling and symptoms that are present after travel.
