Passport Health – Titer Testing
“The staff personwas professional and knowledgeable. We received much information that will make our trip more enjoyable and safer. Medical information was detailed, vaccinations were administered professionally, and non-medical information was also significant. Titers were great as well and helped us save money. We will make changes to our plans as a result. We would recommend that others use this service before traveling.”
“I have used this service several times now, as I travel annually. This time I cam ine for titers to see what I might need. You are given a tailored package which addresses the exact location you are visiting. The information is all-inclusive and they include my past visits and history of previous vaccinations to determine what I might or might not need this time. The office stocks some of the items you might need, e.g., insect repellent, anti-diarrhea remedies, etc., but you do not get a “hard sell” if you opt to purchase on your own. Efficient and well worth the visit. Appointments are always kept on time. I highly recommend it!”
“Both nurses were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was casual and the consultation felt relaxed. They had my health in mind, since I’ve been recently sick, and took caution when administering my titer test, which I appreciated.”
“My husband and I are traveling to Vietnam for the first time. I have an autoimmune disorder and was very nervous and hesitant whether or not to get shots. Sheila gave a full education on all of our options and eased my fear of immunizations, and never pressured us into anything. She even helped me find out about my immunities with titer testing. I feel a sense of relief and am now ready to travel, feeling bulletproof!”
