Why Us?

All travel medicine consultations are performed personally by our doctor in a private office setting in our convenient New York City location. The information, vaccinations (such as Typhoid Fever, Yellow Fever, and Japanese Encephalitis), and prescriptions provided are based on the details of your specific trip, what you are doing during that trip, and your health history.

Known for providing some of the most comprehensive care and travel vaccinations NYC has to offer, our approach to travel health is customized to help ensure you stay well throughout your entire trip.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

    I would say that I have been a patient of Dr. Klapowitz's for 10 years. In that time, I have come to trust his judgment and concern for his patients completely. I first learned of Dr. Klapowitz from a friend of mine who survived ovarian caner. Her oncologist sends his own children to Dr. Klapowitz. I could not recommend another physician more highly than Dr. Klapowitz.

    I have been Dr. Julian Klapowitz's patient for many years, and I tend to think in terms of superlatives in regard to him. He is a first class diagnostician, up to date with the latest medical know-how; he also refers a patient to a specialist such as a cardiologist or a rheumatologist when the diagnosis calls for it. The most wonderful thing about him is that he cares for his patients, and I always leave his office feeling I'm in good hands.

    A great internist, and an even better travel medicine doc. He's been my primary care doctor for over ten years, and has been an amazingly steady and calming influence in my life. He also found a problem with my brother that other docs had missed, and literally saved his life.
    Recently he did my travel medicine work up for a trip; informed me of some preventive maneuvers I had no idea about. Spends an extraordinary amount of time with me every time I am there.

    I've seen Dr. Klapowitz a few times now, and already feel very comfortable with him, and trust his judgement. My wife is also a physician and always agrees with his realistic treatments, and diagnoses. Best physician I've been to as an adult. The office staff are also excellent. Friendly, organized, and efficient. I highly recommend both Dr. Klapowitz and his staff.

Why do I Need a Travel Medicine Consultation?

…why not avoid the shots or just get a couple of them at a pharmacy or walk-in clinic and skip the consultation?
We commonly hear “I have traveled all over the world without a problem, so why spend extra time and money on travel shots and health preparation?” In reality, traveling abroad poses many health risks. Going on a trip without adequate preparation is, essentially, gambling… you may be fine most of the time, but…
