Our Specialties

Travel Medicine Advice

Traveling abroad can increase your chances of being exposed to infections and diseases that can seriously affect your health, and we want to help keep you as healthy as possible during your adventures. We provide vaccination and immunization services in our clinics, so if you are planning a trip abroad, we encourage you to talk to your provider as soon as possible to review your need for travel immunizations and schedule an appointment. Since it takes at least 6 weeks for some vaccines to become effective, we need to see you at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to travel, so schedule your appointment early.

The United States Center for Disease Control has recommendations for travel immunizations specific to each country. These should be reviewed with your provider before you travel. The CDC also provides useful practical advice for staying healthy, so please visit their travel website for more information.

Pediatric Care

We provide regular scheduled vaccinations and travel vaccinations to our pediatric patients, as well as education for parents on children’s limited immunity to infection and other diseases. If possible, children should have completed their regular childhood vaccines on the normal schedule before traveling overseas. However, if your child must travel earlier, accelerated schedules are available for many vaccines. Some travel vaccines cannot be given to very young children, so it is important that you discuss this with your child’s pediatrician as early as possible before travel. We need to administer your child’s vaccinations 6 to 8 weeks prior to departure, so make an appointment as soon as possible.

Adolescent Care

If possible, young adults should have completed their routine childhood vaccines on the normal schedule before traveling overseas. However, if your young adult child must travel earlier, accelerated schedules are available for many vaccines. We need to administer your child’s vaccinations 6 to 8 weeks prior to departure, so make an appointment as soon as possible. We also offer education for parents on children’s limited immunity to infection and other diseases.

Men's Care

Both leisure and business travelers may face health risks when traveling abroad, particularly from infections and diseases not commonly found in the US. In order to keep you healthy on all of your adventures, we provide both regular vaccinations and travel vaccinations in our clinics. We need to see you 6 to 8 weeks before you depart for your recommended vaccinations and medical advice, so schedule your appointment as early as possible. Be sure to talk to your provider about your planned travel activities in case they have special recommendations for you.

Women's Care

Both leisure and business travelers may face health risks when traveling abroad, particularly from infections and diseases not commonly found in the US. We want to keep you healthy no matter where life takes you, so we provide both regular vaccinations and travel vaccinations in our clinics. We need to see you 6 to 8 weeks before you depart for your recommended vaccinations and medical advice, so schedule your appointment as early as possible. Be sure to talk to your provider about your planned travel activities in case they have special recommendations for you. If you are pregnant and planning to travel, please discuss this with your provider, since there may be specific precautions that you should take to keep yourself and your baby healthy.

Senior Care

Senior travelers may face additional health risks when traveling abroad. Before travel, you should make sure your routine vaccines are current, such as those for measles/mumps/rubella and seasonal flu, since these diseases are more common in other countries than in the US. Additionally, more than half of tetanus cases occur in people who are over the age of 65, so we recommend that you consider getting a tetanus booster before you travel. We provide all of these regular vaccinations and travel vaccinations in our clinics, and we must see you 6 to 8 weeks before you depart for your recommended vaccinations and medical advice, so schedule your appointment as early as possible. Be sure to talk to your provider about the medicines you take regularly, including vitamin supplements, so that he or she can prevent potential interactions. We also encourage that you talk with your provider about what Medicare will cover should something occur when you are traveling.
