Preventive Medicine FAQs:
How will I know what specific travel immunizations I will need before my trip?
The necessary immunizations required for travel depend on what country and region you are visiting. In some cases, these vaccinations will only be recommended. In others, they will be fully required in order to travel. Thankfully, our preventive medicine experts will be able to provide these answers depending on the specifics of each patient’s trip.

Do pain control techniques really work?
