The purpose of the Center is for the prevention of diseases such as malaria, cholera, measles, typhoid fever, poliomyelitis, viral hepatitis, yellow fever, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, meningococcus and various causes of diarrhea which occur in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, as well as parts of Europe.  Appropriate risk assessment and prophylaxis are offered by expert physicians.

The completion of a full immunization schedule is important in order to protect against vaccine-preventable disease and to avoid the experience of receiving medical care or immunizations in a country where the level of medical care is suspect.  We recommend a visit eight weeks prior to your travel to plan all your immunization needs.

Each individual private travel medicine consultation is designed specifically for your itinerary.

Our physicians, who are board-certified Infectious Disease Specialists, will provide you with information and the most current recommendations for illness prevention and treatment before, during and after your trip.

Developing and completing an immunization schedule before departure is the first step towards preventive health care for the international traveler.  Other important considerations include:




Consultations are by appointment only. Please contact our office, at (412) 347-0057, to schedule an appointment.
