Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect at my consultation?

You will be asked to fill out a pre-travel questionnaire prior to seeing the doctor. To help serve you, the questionnaire is available to download from this site, and you are encouraged to fill it out before coming for your appointment. Your doctor will then review your vacation plans and your health history and then advise you on what steps you should take prior to travel.

If required, medications can be prescribed and vaccinations given at recommended intervals. The process takes about half an hour.

What is covered?

Many services are not covered by the Alberta Health Insurance Plan. You may have a private insurance company to reimburse you for your costs. Please save all receipts and check with your insurance company where applicable.

How long before travel should I see the Travel Clinic?

As soon as possible. Many vaccinations will require a series of shots which can take months to complete. If you can’t book well in advance, it is still worth seeing us, as there are many things that can be done for the last minute traveller.

At the South Calgary Clinic you will see a DOCTOR and a NURSE as part of your consultation.We have been helping travelers in Calgary prepare for their trips since 1999 and see dozens of patients weekly. Additionally, many of our patients are surprised to find that our fees are often less than the pharmacy. It is your health. It is your choice.
