International travel can be exhilarating and offer unparalleled opportunities. However, many unique health risks and diseases are also waiting to surprise the unsuspecting traveler. Through this website and our travel clinic services we aim to provide comprehensive and relevant information to assist the traveler in staying healthy while abroad. When researching the potential health risks for an upcoming trip, it can feel overwhelming and even lead to anxiety about all the exotic diseases or mishaps that could occur. Fortunately, the majority of health concerns can be managed quite readily with adequate preparation and packing, including a thorough medical assessment for health risks and appropriate immunizations and prescriptions. As a physician with years of international travel experience, I look forward to meeting you, discussing your travel plans and looking together at ways to help reduce your risk of illness or injury while overseas. If I can be of service in any way, feel free to contact the clinic for an appointment.
