Doylestown Health Travel Medicine Program

Safari experience | Doylestown Health

The goal of the Travel Medicine Program is to safeguard your health so that you can make the most of your trip. Doylestown Health’s Travel Medicine team is happy to help get you on your way.

Why See a Travel Medicine Physician?

At least half of travelers to low- and middle-income countries become ill with a travel-related health problem, according to the CDC. A travel health consultation can help you learn about the risk of travel-related diseases and the steps that can be taken to prevent illness. Depending upon the destination, preventative malaria treatment and other immunizations may be required to protect from local infectious disease. Counseling on pathogens and altitude-related sicknesses may also help prevent travel health issues.
