About

Bio

I specialized in pre-travel consultations addressing all aspects of the travelers healthcare needs, including vaccinations, medications, supplies and specific regional health information.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Spider Veins: Yes, if you sit for long periods of time this can promote the formation of varicose veins. Consider frequent movement and using compression stockings.

Jet Lag Effects: The answer is probably yes. Changing time zones when flying alters your internal sense of timing (your circadian rhythms) and can cause feelings such as lightheadedness. Avoidance of alcohol prior and during flight and being well rested prior to the trip can help prevent this effect.
