Finally, the touring season has arrived, and you are probably packing and preparing to create some great memories. Along with your luggage, travel insurance, and credit cards, there’s another must-have item that should be with you—instant access to medical care while traveling in case of an emergency.

Virtual Doctor Appointments from Anywhere

Organizations like the International Society of Travel Medicine work with the CDC to provide medical assistance to travelers. CallonDoc allows travelers to get needed care wherever they are; no appointments or waiting rooms needed!

Pharmacies and Prescriptions

There used to be nothing worse than traveling and forgetting to renew or pack your prescription. Visiting a pharmacy to get a renewal can take time, become costly, or force you to go without needed medication.

That’s all a thing of the past with CallonDoc medical services. Don’t worry about finding a doctor; just have your phone, computer, or tablet handy! CallonDoc treats and prescribes everywhere in the U.S., making it a convenient and affordable choice.

Avoid These Common Medical Mishaps

There are many medical issues you can encounter unexpectedly when on vacation:

Prescription Refills

There’s nothing worse than forgetting or running out of necessary medication while on holiday. With a diverse variety of conditions, CallonDoc can help you refill daily prescriptions for things such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension, birth control, insomnia, mental health prescriptions, and more! Just answer a few medical questions and pick up your medication from any local pharmacy within hours of submitting your request so you never have to miss a dose!

Illness and Emergency Care

Illness and accidents can and do happen while on vacation, but they may not occur during clinic hours, and spending time sick on vacation or at expensive urgent care centers for medical emergencies isn’t ideal.

Your family can receive compassionate pediatric or adult medical care from CallonDoc at your hotel or anywhere else, at any time.


Unfamiliar surroundings or jet lag can cause insomnia. CallonDoc makes prescriptions available with a click so that you can rest and make the most of your vacation.
