What to do When You Need a Doctor While Traveling

With summer vacation season finally here, you’ll soon be packing and getting ready to make some great memories. But along with your luggage, travel insurance and credit cards, there’s another essential item that you should always ensure you have with you—instant access to physicians.

Virtual Doctor Appointments, From Anywhere

There are certain organizations, such as the International Society of Travel Medicine, that work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide medical assistance to travelers before, during, and after travel. Telemedicine with CallonDoc allows travelers to get the care they need wherever they are traveling without appointments or waiting rooms!

Pharmacies and Prescriptions

There used to be nothing worse than being out of the country and discovering that you needed your prescription renewed, forgot to pack it, or had run out. You could visit a pharmacy and get a renewal, but this could take time, become costly, or force you to go without needed medication.

Today, this is all a thing of the past. With CallonDoc medical services, you don’t have to worry about finding a doctor; all that's needed is your phone, computer or tablet! CallonDoc can treat and prescribe anywhere in the United States for a convenient and affordable way to get care from a provider. We have hospital affiliation and work with every pharmacy in the US, and that offers our patients cost savings and convenience. 

Avoid These Common Medical Mishaps

Despite your best vacation planning, there are many medical issues you can encounter unexpectedly, and after hours, when out of town. 

Prescription Refills

There is nothing worse than traveling and forgetting or running out of a necessary, daily medication. CallonDoc can help you get your prescriptions easily with their prescription refill consultations. Never run out of diabetes, blood pressure, or any other life saving medication. Simply select "prescription refills" at CallonDoc.com, answer a few medical questions and pick up your medication from a local pharmacy. You never have to miss one dose with their same-day treatments.

Illness and Urgent Care

Whether you travel alone or with your family, illness and accidents can and do happen. But they may not occur during the day or week when most local clinics are open and you probably don't want to spend time waiting at a germy and expensive urgent care for medical care.

Ranging from a cold, sore throat, pain relief or Covid, CallonDoc is there. Instead of having to travel or make appointments, you or your family member can receive compassionate pediatric or adult medical care from a primary doctor from your hotel, family’s residence, and anywhere else. 


Insomnia is the bane of every traveler. Whether it’s being in unfamiliar surroundings or jet lag that’s keeping you awake, CallonDoc makes prescriptions available with a click so you can get the rest you need to enjoy the most out of your vacation.

Motion Sickness

Motion sickness can turn vacation excitement into a nightmare. But when you have CallonDoc, you can prevent motion sickness from ruining your day on the road or water. Just connect with a physician and get your prescription filled in a matter of hours to your local pharmacy!

UTIs and Birth Control

The pain, fever, and discomfort of urinary tract infections can make you miss the best parts of your vacation. Thankfully, male and female travelers suffering with UTI can get the help and relief they need with CallonDoc specialists, who can write and send prescriptions for fast pickup.

Not taking your birth control pills as scheduled can disrupt your cycle and hormonal balance. If you forgot to pack your prescription, all that’s needed to get back on track is to contact CallonDoc. Your physician will ensure your prescription is ready to be picked up without you having to skip one day.

Dermatological Conditions

Acne and eczema flare-ups can occur at the most inconvenient times, including while you’re on vacation. These conditions can be uncomfortable and painful, taking away from the time you should be enjoying with family and friends. But CallonDoc dermatologists treat you right away so that you get the help you need without taking time away from your trip.
