About the Travel Clinic of ADC

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, most people do not think about the possibility of acquiring a travel-related illness. In fact, travel in undeveloped countries and many foreign or tropical countries outside of resort areas, does entail some risks for acquiring local or travel-related diseases. The Travel Clinic at Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic is available to assist you with problems in this regard. We have a full-service clinic with disease-prevention strategies, information, vaccinations and medications available for travel essentially anywhere in the world. The travel clinic at ADC is supervised by Dr. Taylor Carlisle, a board certified Infection Disease specialist trained in Tropical Medicine and Public Health.

Staying Healthy When You Travel

If you are planning to take your family overseas for a vacation, or maybe you’re going on a mission trip with your church, Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic encourages you to take precautions prior to your trip. Our travel clinic not only provides immunizations, but also provides pre-travel counseling and post-travel health evaluations. It is recommended that you see your physician 6 to 8 weeks prior to your departure and then again; after your trip if you experience unusual health issues. Remember, it is easier to take precautions in preventing overseas illnesses than it is to treat them. Call Amarillo Diagnostic Clinic today and let our travel clinic staff assist you in planning for a healthy overseas adventure.

People are basically the same no matter where you travel.
But the diseases and illnesses can be very different.

The bacteria and germs that live in one country can be very different from those of another region. That's why lots of people get sick when they travel - they don't have natural immunity to these germs (or put another way, their bodies haven't yet learned how to defend themselves against these new, potentially health-threatening invaders). A common example of this is " traveler's diarrhea," which often occur when visitors drink tap water while away. Ever notice how the locals don't suffer from this malady? That's because they have natural immunity to the bacteria that are present in their water and you don't.
