This is an opportunity for our travel medicine providers to share with you detailed information about your travel, taking into consideration your:

  • itinerary

  • risk tolerance

  • medical history

Many travelers may not be aware of certain precautions and risks at the destination, so we can help fill that knowledge gap.

Typical information reviewed in the pre-travel consultation includes:

  • traveler's medical conditions and medications will be reviewed and health issues will be addressed in relation to the travel destination and potential risks and concerns

  • insect precautions

  • food and water safety

  • rabies

  • altitude health

  • prescriptions for important medications, such as for malaria or an antibiotic for traveler's diarrhea

Some may think the pre-travel consultation is unnecessary and that one can gain this information online through various resources.


While it is true that there are resources online which provide country-specific travel information (see our Links page for examples), we can clarify potentially overwhelming and confusing information and construct a clear, understandable plan that works for you. To that point, the pre-travel consult is a vital part of our travel medicine services.
