“The nurse was great today. She took the time to explain what was recommended for travel to the Philippines, and the different options. We put together a list, she administered what needed to be, and I was on my way.”
“The representative that I worked with provided me with a ton a relevant information related to my travel plan. It was especially appreciated because I only had an approximation of where I might be travelling, so I was presented with choices based upon highest risk, and factoring in my budget. I am really glad that I found this company while doing a web search for “places near me to get travel vaccinations”. It saved me a ton of research and made me feel more prepared as a female solo traveler. I was able to chose not only vaccinations for the highest risk diseases, but also preventative medications (malaria, travelers diarrhea) all based on my budget and likelihood of the disease affecting me. One note: the entire experience made me feel so grateful to be one of the people on this planet that can afford to vaccinate against diseases that kill millions of people a year.”
“The Nurse offered much education on the risk and prevention of disease for my travel destinations. She was thorough and efficient.”
“I had to go to the clinic for shorts that are required for my trip to India. It is so refreshing to go to an appt. and not having to wait. I walked in the door and immediately was taken in the back. The individual was informative with the information needed to ensure that I had all the shots needed for my trip.”
