What makes our services exceptional

At The Washington Travel Clinic, we do our best to accommodate your schedule. Our clients find that our online appointment scheduling service is extremely convenient; it allows for secure registration and for making, rescheduling and canceling appointments with a few clicks, 24/7. Appointment confirmations and reminders are automatically sent to you via e-mail.

Our office is conveniently located near the Farragut West metro station.

We are paperless and we strive to be green. We use electronic charts and there are no forms or questionnaires to fill out. Even our sign-in sheet is electronic.

At the Washington Travel Clinic you are seen by a physician specializing in Infectious Diseases and Travel Medicine. Dr. Akl answers the phone personally and will discuss your concerns, if any, prior to your visit. During your visit, Dr. Akl will review your medical history and itinerary – this allows him to determine which vaccines you should receive and what other preventive measures you should take.

Dr. Akl personally administers the necessary immunizations during the same visit. His use of very thin needles makes your experience almost painless. Administered vaccines are recorded on an International Certificate of Vaccination, which is provided to you during the same visit.

Information on travel precautions is discussed and sent to you via e-mail at the time of your visit. Prescriptions are provided as needed and for your convenience can be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice -- this way your medicines will be ready for you to pick-up when you get to the pharmacy. Blood tests, when needed, are drawn on location.

Follow-up appointments and payments are conveniently made in the same exam room, which is why our clients call us a one-stop shop. Testimonials describe the experience as “painless,” “easy,” “efficient,” “fast” and “convenient.” Upon request, your physician is sent a letter documenting the vaccines you received. A copy of your medical records is a mouse-click away and is sent to you via e-mail upon request.

In case of an emergency, you can reach Dr. Akl personally 24/7 by phone. If a consultation is needed after your trip because of illness, Dr. Akl is available to see you and your initial visit is free if you had a full consultation before your travel.

Our regular travel visit fee is $60 per person, which includes a full travel consultation. Families are charged a flat $110 fee. The regular visit fee is valid for one year during which follow-up visits and requests for prescription refills are free of charge. If only one vaccine is needed and no consultation is requested, the visit fee is $30. For non-travelers requesting vaccines (e.g. for immigration, work, school, etc.) the visit fee is $30.

The cost of the various vaccines offered is listed in the Pricing section. We do not charge a visit fee for the flu, shingles and HPV vaccines. Charges for physicals depend on the complexity of the exam. Please click on Pricing for additional information.
