Dr Deb The Travel Doctor
Overseas Travel is more than visiting wonderful places, tasting exotic foods and encountering different people, it might also mean contracting vile diseases...that you may never get over.
This website is packed with useful information for travellers who want to stay healthy when they travel overseas. There is also information for those helping travellers e.g. travel agents, business travellers, group leaders, journalists etc.
This website will give you information about our Travel Medicine Clinic, where we are, what we do, and how we can work with you to ensure you enjoy good health while you travel.
Whether you are travelling overseas as a seasoned traveller, or for the first-time, we have the information you need.
This website, will also help you access other travel medicine resources available on the web.
Our travel medicine service is special because of our staff - our expert Travel Doctors and Travel Nurses.
Our medical team are keen, seasoned travellers who have first-hand experience of the type of conditions you will be facing. Our full time staff have extra qualifications in travel medicine (ISTM certificate of knowledge), and Dr Deb The Travel Doctor, our medical director has been working in the area of travel medicine for 20 years.
This means that the advice you receive from us is world class, and practical.
To get the exact recommendations for your trip, you would need to come and see us in the real world. Our Travel Doctors would need to spend some time with you to provide you with balanced, specialised advice.
Rather than simply giving you every available injection, we do minimise your pain and expense by tailoring your shots for the specific area you are visting, the length of your stay, your medical history and your current health.
Whether you need protection against Yellow Fever, Malaria, Hepatitis A, or any other vile disease, you can be sure our online information, and real world travel health care will give you peace-of-mind.
When it comes time to receive your vaccinations, you'll be pleasantly surprised! You see, we give people needles day-in and day-out and have perfected the art of giving them as painlessly as possible!
You'll enjoy the same gentle care that we give our nervous, elderly and young patients, because keeping travellers happy is what we're all about.
Beware of media myths!
You won't get an unbiased view of "conditions overseas" from the TV, radio or newspapers. Their job is to sell their stories. Our job is to give you specialised, reliable travel advice. If you want to know more about DVT (travellers' thrombosis), atypical pneumonia, plague or just the travellers' trots ... consult us for the real story, or visit our Special Reports or Travel News sections.
Make appointments online or contact our Travel Vaccination Clinic direct.
