Call the Doctor

11 of 12

If you do feel ill, the best hotels can get you to a doctor. Some will even
pay “house” calls. Four
Seasons New York
and Mandarin
Oriental New York
refer their guests to travel specialists. Forgot to pack a prescription drug
(malaria pills, for instance)? Explain to the concierge at the Berkeley Hotel in London and he can
refer the hotel’s physician for basic medications that will be delivered to your room from an
apothecary around the corner on Knightsbridge Street. You can also contact the U.S. Consulate for
assistance in obtaining local medical attention. The International
Society of Travel Medicine
maintains a directory of health-care professionals in nearly 50
countries.

T+L Recommends: Join the International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers, which
has a directory of English-speaking physicians, hospitals, and clinics for any member who requires
care abroad. Consultation rates usually start at $100.
