If you are pregnant and traveling, or pregnant and an expatriate, or even planning a pregnancy and wondering about travel we do offer personalized advice regarding your travel and your pregnancy.
We prefer, always, to work in conjunction with your own medical provider. You will notice that our registration form asks for the name of that provider and how to contact him or her, as we will want to share with them what we are advising you and why. If you do not yet have a medical provider for your pregnancy, however, or if you prefer that we do not contact him or her, we will still be glad to assist you.
Dr. Carroll is engaged in the full time practice of both obstetrics and travel medicine in
Michigan, U.S.A. Please be aware that standards of care vary greatly from one country to another. What we advise in the United States may not be what is currently practiced where you live. If your doctor or midwife feels that our advice is incorrect, we welcome direct communication with him or her.
We ask you to fill out our Contact Us form. We will contact you directly by secure, encrypted e-mail to get more details on your situation and answer your questions. Our most common service is a private evaluation of your individual situation and itinerary with our recommendations. Matters we cover include pre-travel preparation, documents and insurance, medical evacuation, finding care at your destination, environmental issues, identification of disease risk and prevention, security issues, shots and preventive medications along with many others. A follow-up phone call or email either with you or with your primary medical provider is included.
We do charge a consultation fee for personalized advice. Payment is made via PayPal.
Giving medical advice via the Internet, in the absence of the ability to examine you directly, is fraught with hazard. We provide this service only because in many instances direct physical exam by anyone is impossible (for example, if you live in a remote area), or the information regarding a particular problem of pregnancy and travel is simply not generally available. In this situation, because of the limitations involved, we cannot and will not be liable in the case of less than optimal outcomes. You will be asked to absolve us of liability before we can undertake to advise you.
Please fill out the form below to contact us with your comments and questions. Please note that in order to reply specific questions regarding your pregnancy or your trip we will need detailed information about our health history and your itinerary.
There is a consultation fee charge for providing answers to specific questions regarding your situation.
