“My husband and I wen’t there with our 4 year old, not knowing exactly what to expect. We thought you say what places you’re going to and they give you a shot. Sally did so much more than that. We’re not completely set on all of our travel destinations, as we’re trying to travel full time, starting next month. She spent close to 1.5 hours with us where she educated us on what we’d be walking into with different countries, what the danger is with certain diseases, where they are prevalent, how you can best avoid them with precautions and preventions, etc. She answered every question we had and went into detail with her answers. She was very straight-forward but insanely helpful and was willing to help us make any travel, we thought of, possible. Thank you.”
“Great experience today. I thought it might be a cold and sterile environment loaded with people in it. But it was a welcoming office with a Practitioner that was very thorough. I feel more at ease going overseas!”
