Travel Medicine

One of the first things you should do when planning an overseas trip is to set up an appointment with your doctor to ensure that your travel vaccinations are up to date. Many different factors can affect your risk of contracting a disease or illness when you travel. The doctors at Pivotal Health are experienced in Travel Medicine and are able to evaluate these factors to come up with a care plan tailored to your travel. We also have weekly access to travel health alerts which notify us of disease outbreaks all over the world.
