What is Travel Medicine?

International travel often poses risks that the traveler may overlook in the excitement leading up to the trip. That is why Hoag Medical Group (HMG) has developed travel medicine services. The focus of travel medicine services at HMG is prevention. During the pre-travel consultation, we begin by assessing the patient’s overall health and fitness for travel. Next, we review the itinerary in order to create an individualized plan to decrease each patient’s travel risks. To maximize the benefit of the consultation, patients are advised to make an appointment at least six weeks in advance of travel.

During your pre-travel consultation,we will discuss:

  • Jet Lag
  • Deep Venous Thrombosis
  • Altitude Sickness
  • Routine Vaccinations
  • Malaria
  • Traveler’s Disease
  • Travel-Specific Vaccines
