Online travel health consultation today
Summit Travel Health is an innovator in the Travel Medicine space: our technology allows you to do a full travel consultation and itinerary review in the comfort of your home or office. We understand that people have busy lives, so we wanted to build a convenient solution that allows you to speak directly with our Nurse Practitioners about your travel plans. We received many requests for this functionality from our busy patients, and we are excited to now it offer it.
Virtual Travel Medicine Consultation Cost
Our Virtual Travel Medicine Consultations Cost $30, and the consult fee will give you the ability to come in to meet with our Nurse Practitioner for free to receive any recommended travel vaccinations or travel medicine prescriptions. Vaccines and medications are separate and will be billed at the time of administration.
How does it work?
Utilizing our technology platform, you can securely meet with one of our Nurse Practitioners over video and discuss your medical history and your travel itinerary. Think of this as having a Google Hangout or FaceTime with our Medical Staff, where you can ask any relevant questions about your travel itinerary or specific vaccines.
Our Nurse Practitioners are experts in travel health and vaccine preventable diseases. We will help you prepare for a healthy and safe trip to any destination. As part of your pre-travel consultation we will advise you of the vaccines or medications available to minimize specific health risks in your area of travel. If during the consultation it is advised that you need a travel vaccine or travel medicine prescription, our Nurse Practitioner will schedule and appointment time in-person where you can come into one of our ten clinics and receive your vaccines in a timely manner.
Steps to follow
- Schedule a virtual travel consult.
- Fill out the medical forms we provide.
- Complete your virtual travel consult with our Nurse Practitioner (15 minutes).
- If necessary, our Nurse Practitioner will then book a follow-up appointment in-person, where you can meet at one of our ten locations for vaccine administration (10 minutes).
