Stefanie Mc Bain, RN BScN
I graduated from Ottawa University in 2007. I have a background in travel health and pediatric mental health. I have a passion for providing health protection to all individuals, especially children. I am calm and compassionate. I strive to make every travel health consult personable and engaging. I love working for Passport Health because I get to meet friendly people excited for their upcoming trips. Working for this great company helps me to empower people by giving them the knowledge and tools they require before they leave. My goal is to have all clients feel like they can travel with peace of mind knowing that they received immunizations against many diseases and that they received excellent travel advice.
“Nicole is extremely knowledgeable and provided a detailed and comprehensive review of my immunization requirements and health and wellness considerations for my upcoming trip to Africa. I am impressed with the personal Booklet given to me detailing my trip which is also a very useful reference document. Each vaccine was reviewed in detail with printed instructions included. I highly recommend this Office and in particular Nicole.”
“I’m taking a last-minute trip and the Passport clinic got me in within a day a phoning. The nurse, Nancy, had looked up my destination city ahead of time. She had everything we needed prepared and laid out in advance. Nancy asked good questions and provided very helpful information. I felt comfortable that my health was in good hands. I would definitely use Passport again.”
“Had our appointment with Nicole this morning , very impressed as she had allot of great travel information.. Was great that they could accommodate us in the same appointment”
“I went in for my booster shot today and interacted with someone who truly loves what she does and enjoys working with people. She was cheerful, knowledgeable, and professional. Thanks!”
“Staff is very knowledgeable and thorough with their follow-ups. Their focus is to give you the facts on potential health risks specific to the region you plan to visit. Should you decide to decline any recommendations, they will provide professional, simple and clear advice to protect yourself as best as possible. All this, in a pressure free environment. Special thank you to Nicole Dallinger who, herself, has the travel experience necessary to anticipate the needs and concerns of the intrepid traveler.”
“The experienced staff and service was great. They knew exactly the immunizations required for the area we are going to visit and provided a thorough and comprehensive overview of the risk of travel to the area. I would use this service again and highly recommend it to everyone who wants to travel.”
“The consultation was very thorough. The nurse made sure to go through all the necessary precautions for the area I was visiting. She recommended vaccinations and treatment plans based on my occupation at destination and risk level. The vaccination was PAINLESS! I was a little surprised – I didn’t even feel it (…it was sore afterwards but that’s normal).”
“I was really impressed by the quality of service I received at the clinic. The RN had prepared a detailed information booklet before my appointment and was thorough in ensuring that I was receiving all the necessary pills and vaccinations for my trip. I have a fear of shots and the RN was compassionate and ensured I was feeling well before leaving the clinic. This went above my expectations for the consultation and I would recommend the clinic to any traveller.”

She explained the injections that where recommended to us, and what to look out for when we are there..For example different Mosquito’s and virus, also whet we should eat and not eat. Most important was when she gave the injection, I didn’t feel a thing..First time in my life, Thank You for a great experience. Would recommend this clinic to everyone.”

“Nicole was very prepared for my consultation,was very knowledgeable on all aspects of travel health and could answer any questions we had.”
“Your clinic was accommodating and the nurse was knowledgeable and very professional. The price point was too high. You are $30 to $50 more expensive than other clinics. So why did I choose you? Because you could accommodate me on very short notice at the date and time that was convenient for me and very close to my house. Another awesome point: your call service. It’s easy to get a hold of somebody (a real person), fast. Very efficient and professional. This is a big plus for me !! That’s the MAIN reason why you got my business that day. At other clinics I got the answering machine or an automated message or courteous message re-directing me to their on-line service, which was not current and didn’t do anything to get me to my outcome of “getting a vaccine that day”. Hope this was helpful, Take care, Nat”
“Nurse was extremely helpful. Made time for us on very short notice.”
“It’s a small clinic but after visiting a different travel clinic and having been forced to reschedule short notice, the nurse (Nicole) that was there today was VERY helpful and explained everything in detail. We had issues with our debit cards to issue a refund and she was so kind and helpful and even spent time on the phone with moneris in order for us to get our refund. GREAT customer service!”
“my visit was very informative and friendly. She gave me all the information I needed and i didn’t feel pressured. I’d heard travel clinics try to scare you in to everything but this wasn’t the case. ver good experience.”
“I was very impressed by the service that I had at my appointments for my vaccinations. The Nurse was very personable, and thorough.”
“Excellent service and very helpful recommendations specific t o my destination. Thank you!”
“My follow up visit for an additional booster was as good as my original visit! Sam was very friendly and incredibly fast. In and out in 15 minutes. Thank you!”
