For the modern traveler, health and safety are paramount. Whether you're a business traveler, a student studying abroad, going back to visit friends, or you’re embarking on a grand adventure, Guthrie Infectious Diseases is here to support your journey with our comprehensive travel medicine services.

Why Choose to see a Travel Medicine Doctor?

Traveling can expose you to infectious diseases that are rare in the United States, but seeing a travel medicine provider can help keep you healthy. Our team of professionals specializing in travel medicine are here to guide you by providing the necessary vaccinations and assessing health risks related to your travel plans. A travel medicine provider can also diagnose and treat complications that might have arisen during or after your trip.

Pre-Travel Consultation

A travel consultation consists of assessing your vaccination needs based on your travel destination, the duration of your stay, your planned activities and your medical history. Your provider will also review health risks and infection preventions tips tailored to you and your travel plans.

If you have pre-existing conditions, such as a cardiac disease, insulin-dependent diabetes, or a suppressed immune system, it’s especially important to meet with a travel medicine provider to discuss any special precautions you should be taking.

It is recommended that your pre-travel visit take place 4-6 weeks before your departure, so any vaccinations have time to take effect. If needed, special accommodations can be arranged for short-notice trips, as well as convenient appointments for large travel groups.

To make an appointment, please call 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).
