Our board certified infectious disease physicians and nurse practitioner provide the following services in a private office setting:

- Post-travel health care, should it be necessary
- Political and safety information, including embassy phone numbers
International travelers should schedule a travel consultation as soon as travel plans are finalized because, ideally, travel vaccines should be administered at least two to four weeks before intended travel. This delay allows the immune system enough time to produce protective antibody levels against the disease. Some immunizations are given in a series and should be started four to five weeks before the intended departure. A plan can be outlined during your initial consultation. In addition, certain modifications can be made if you have only short notice prior to travel.
