“I really had no expectations regarding what was to happen at this visit, but if I had had any, Caroline Tran would have exceeded them. She was welcoming, friendly and warm – but most of all, she was prepared for us. She knew the countries we were planning on travelling to and had all information researched and ready. She was able to answer all our questions. Best of all, everything we needed was on hand so no return visit is required. I have already recommended your company to other travelling friends.”
“I recently visited the location on Dundas Street in Etobicoke for vaccines that I require for travel in October and found the nurse assigned to me Sharmei to be just so knowledgeable in travel and vaccines. She instantly made me feel confident in her recommendations of what I required for my upcoming trip. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family for their travels.”
“Our appointment started on time. The nurse was prepared (we had filled the medical history questionaire online in advance) and walked us through the risks and proposed options for vaccines, explaining those that are covered and those that are not. We selected based on her recommendation, had the initial shots and booked the follow-up appointments, all in 30 minutes.”
“Great visit to the Etobicoke location of passport health today. My nurse, Sharmei, was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. She made sure I was quite comfortable and had all of the information I needed before on deciding which vaccinations to get. Lots of additional information provided about the travel destination which was also quite helpful!”
“They took their turn me to discuss our options, and further explained when asked about various diseases/vaccines. Very accommodating and quick!”
“My practitioner was informative and reviewed all my vaccinations with me. She reminded me about previous medications and what to do in the future should I feel ill.”
“Travel to developing nations can involve health risks that might cause problems for the unaware traveler. Weather conditions, geographical location, condition of infrastructure and the effectiveness of governments, all work to make environments that are not what people from Canada are accustomed to. Some of the diseases the traveler could be exposed to, are those that we in the cold north don’t have to even consider. The experts at Passport Health provide verbal explanation and paper printouts giving information about the specific countries to be visited. We learn which diseases are prevalent in the region, we learn the vaccines to take to offset the risk, and we learn how long the vaccines are effective. We get tips on how to stay safe from ubiquitous and dangerous microbes in water and food. After visiting the clinic, I feel I can be a conscious traveler who can make wise decisions to maintain my health.”
“I had a great experience at Passport Health in Etobicoke. Caroline Tran was excellent, she provided me with a lot of important information with detail. It was clear that she is very educated on travel medicine and she was also very kind and patient. I also received a personalized information package, catered to my trip and places I am going. I am also scared of needles, but Caroline made me feel calm and helped me get through it. I would highly recommend Passport Health and will continue going there myself.”
“I visited a travel clinic for the first time today and thus was unsure what to expect. The nurse, Caroline Tran, was so energetic and friendly. She explained the illnesses and prevention thoroughly and provided me with useful insights for travel in general. I would definitely return to this clinic based on my great experience!”
“Excellent information from Caroline Tran and will be back”
“Caroline was extremely helpful, cordial, and knowledgeable. Her office was clean and confidence-inspiring. I will definitely return for future travel vaccination requirements.”
“Our nurse was informative! We found her very knowledge able and likeable”
