Travel Doctor

Hello,

Wondering if anyone knows of an English speaking travel doctor in Busan-  Need to get some vaccines before heading to SE Asia.

Thanks!

There's a travel clinic in DongA Hospital in Gudeok.  I'm not sure if they speak English but they have a foreigners desk, and they will go in with you to translate.  Alternatively, I think you can assume that most major hospitals have the same service.

Re: Travel Doctor
hey there, I found it really hard to find a hospital that gives travel vaccines in Busan.  I eventually went to the Pusan National University Hospital in Yangsan (last stop on green subway line) to get my tetanus and hep. shots.  If you find the same problem I did, take a korean friend with you and head to Yangsan. You shoudnt need an appointment but it would be better to call ahead (ph. 1577-7512) http://english.yangsan.go.kr/05/05_02.php
