I am a Family Doctor in Toronto and the Director of The Travel Clinic. I graduated from medicine at The University of Toronto in 1975, and received my Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from The London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in 1977.
Since that time, I have practiced family medicine, as well as travel and tropical medicine. I am the medical advisor to several non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including CUSO International.
My travels, for both work and pleasure, have taken me to all of South America, Haiti, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras, India, Nepal, Europe, Israel, Kenya and Tanzania, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda and Cuba and more. I have eaten all of the same food as you, travelled the same roads as you, and encountered many of the same problems as you. Aside from some memorable bouts of Montezuma’s Revenge, sunburns and many near misses on the roads, I have managed to stay healthy most of the time. Hopefully, so will you.
In May 2002, I published the book – THE TRAVEL DOCTOR – Your Guide To Staying Healthy While You Travel. The sequel to this, TRAVEL HEALTH GUIDE, is now out and is available online and at most bookstores. In my humble and biased opinion, it is an excellent, pocket-sized resource for you or your travelling children!
My staff consists of Indi Lochan, Dolly Thavaranjah, Eve Roa and Karon Rautianen. From these wonderful ladies you will get accurate information, timely appointments, the gentlest needles in the country, and the friendliest service.
