MDtravelhealth.com has been acquired by Red Planet Travel, a trading name of Corazón Tecsys SL, Tarragona Spain.
Red Planet Travel wishes to thank David Goldberg MD for allowing us to carry on the work that he started back in 2000.
After 15 years, he has decided to retire from MD Travel Health. He started the site in the year 2000 because at that time, in the early days of the Internet, there was a need for a website that gave travelers a detailed, up-to-date review of all the health information they would need for any given country.
For the last twenty years, he has been in private practice in Scarsdale NY, where he has advised many travelers. He is a member of the International Society of Travel Medicine, the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and the Wilderness Medical Society. He is also a contributing author for the Lonely Planet series of guide books.
The website text was prepared by David Goldberg MD, with the editorial assistance of Wendy K. Goldberg. Dr. Goldberg graduated magna cum laude from Yale University and with honors from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed his training in internal medicine and infectious diseases at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, where he has also served as voluntary faculty.
It should be noted that while the site is in transition to its new home in the Red Planet Travel family of websites and new editors are found some of the information on this site may be outdated.
As David recommended in the past, please consider the Centers for Disease Control in their Travel Health website, available at www.cdc.gov. Most of the information that has been provided is now available there, and at this time we would encourage you to visit their site before going abroad.
As with all medical information you find on the internet, you should consult a qualified local physician for your particular circumstances and specialist advice.
