At Cabarrus Family Medicine-Mt. Pleasant, we believe in servant leadership. For years, our physicians and physician assistants have traveled to the developing world to take care of those less fortunate. From these trips, we recognized a need in our community for medical services for those planning to go overseas.
The chance of a traveler getting sick is up to 50 percent, depending where you go. You not only have to worry about common problems such as traveler's diarrhea and the flu, but also diseases you may have read about and never seen: malaria, typhoid, or dengue fever.
Maybe you are taking your dream vacation. Or perhaps God has called you to the mission field. Come see us 6-8 weeks before your trip, so that you can receive the appropriate vaccinations, travel prescriptions, and information on how to keep yourself safe during your trip. As family doctors, we know your history and health problems, and we can take care of you when you return home.
