The NCH physician group has five physicians trained in internal medicine, specializing in infectious disease and certified in travel medicine. The NCH physician group travel physicians promote quality travel medicine services and information. We provide the traveler with up to the minute information about health alerts and travel warnings specific to the travel destination.
What to Expect
Once you have made the decision to travel and the reservations made with your travel agent, you will be given an itinerary. If your journey will take you outside of the United States, you may be required to receive immunizations to protect you from infectious diseases common in the areas that you plan to visit, especially if your plans take you to developing countries. Timing is very important as some medications need to be given in multiples over a period of time and others may require that they are given a certain time period before travel in order to provide the protection needed.
From the travel itinerary our staff will print a detailed report which gives the traveler information about some of the following:
- Health concerns in the area
- Yellow Fever summary
- Other immunization recommendations
- Travel advisory
- General information
- Travel tips
- Consular information
- Insect precautions
Following Strict Safety Guidelines
We are able to check with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Information such as a possible epidemic or pandemic alert or unrest in the destination area will be discussed with the traveler.
In order to make the most of your traveling experience, you want to do the proper planning prior to your trip. Seeing our NCH physician group travel doctors will help make your experience much safer so that you can fully enjoy your time visiting other areas of the world.
