Our Team

Our team at The Travel Doctor-TMVC Darwin are passionate about travel and have first-hand experience working and travelling within many of the destinations our patients visit. This allows us to provide travel medicine to a variety of travellers. As passionate travellers, we understand the risks and rewards associated with international travel.

Our medical team have undertaken additional training in this discipline to enable them to provide accurate and individualised advice, all relevant to your destination and itinerary.

We employ three experienced travel medicine practitioners, two trained nurses and nine enthusiastic administrative professionals who work together to provide a professional service to all patients.
