We practice “evidence-based medicine”

That means that we base our recommendations on solid data about what the risks are at your destination. No guessing or “gut feelings”. Using best available travel health database, we prepare travelers for a healthy trip, and we have been doing this more than 30 years

 

In our clinic ALL  travelers will receive pre-travel advice and immunizations ONLY  by a board-certified Mayo-clinic trained internist with International Certificate in Travel Health, issued by International Society of Travel Medicine.

We are a main vaccination center in Washington Metropolitan area where physicians, embassies, international organizations, corporations & universities refer adults  and   children for routine, school and pre-travel immunizations.

Pre-travel consultation should be obtained ideally at least 8 weeks before travel to allow time to initiate immunizations. Review of medical history is important to define pertinent underlying medical conditions; for instance, a person whose spleen has been previously removed is predisposed to more severe malaria and meningococcal infections.

Staying healthy abroad is not a question of luck, and is much too important to be left to chance. Prevention is the only strategy for staying healthy abroad that any traveler can afford to rely on. Health prevention really works, and the time you invest in becoming familiar with them will be amply rewarded. This Web site provides information on required and recommended vaccinations, malaria prevention, travelers' diarrhea and general health advice for the international traveler. More detailed and updated information may be obtained from H. Bahar, M.D., at the International Travelers' Clinic before traveling abroad.

Dr. H. Bahar, member of the International Society of Travel Medicine will be able to:

 

  • Review your travel itinerary to better plan for prevention of medical problems.
  • Review measures to prevent travelers' diarrhea, hepatitis, motion sickness and diseases caused by insect bites.
  • Prescribe medication to treat travelers diarrhea, motion sickness, jet lag and other possible illnesses.
  • Give specialized recommendations if you will be staying in areas where exposure to malaria, typhoid, yellow fever, rabies, plague, meningitis, and other infectious and tropical diseases can occur.

     

     

  • Prescribe drugs for malaria prevention, particularly where chloroquine-resistant strains are known to occur.
  • Discuss the possible side effects of the immunizations you may require and administer immunizations personally.
  • Review your medical history and medications. Alter current therapy when necessary for travel.
  • Perform a physical examination if necessary. For example prior to a lengthy stay in a foreign country.
  • Advise you about traveling if you are pregnant or traveling with small children.
  • Provide for physician referral when abroad.
  • Consider your specialized medical needs if you are disabled or handicapped
