The Travel Doctor
The Travel Doctor was established in New Zealand in 1996 and is one of nine clinics around New Zealand.
Both of our doctors have done postgraduate study in travel medicine and are members of the International Society of Travel Medicine, they are also experienced general practitioners, so can combine their knowledge of personal medical conditions and medications. They have also advised school groups going on overseas trips.
A travel consultation will include a 30-minute consultation with the doctor and then a further 30 minutes with the nurse.
We will need to work out exactly what you need to know for your trip – this will depend on where you are going, your style of accommodation, activities while you are there, your past medical history, allergies and a range of other factors that are best discussed during your consultation.
Ideally the consultation should take place at least eight weeks prior to departure as some vaccinations require a course to be given – but it is never too late to seek advice.
We offer a full range of vaccinations for international travel. If you are travelling to South America or Africa, Doctors Holmes and Saini are certified Yellow Fever vaccinating doctors.
We also have a range of medical products for travellers, including first aid and medical kits and insect repellents. Our emphasis is on health and safety – not travel gimmicks or money making asides.
We look forward to seeing you, sharing in the excitement of your trip and sending you off as informed and prepared as possible.
Extra fees apply for the longer consultation, plus vaccination costs – please ask when booking your appointment.
