MHMG’s retired founding physician, Gerald M. Brennock, M.D. is now
one of a handful of Orange County physicians specializing in travel and
tropical medicine and is the only one certified by the field’s two
main governing bodies which are, the American Society of Tropical medicine
and Hygiene and the International Society of Travel Medicine. Dr. Brennock
didn’t always specialize in travel medicine, but after a trip to
the Amazon in 1992, where he saw people ill-prepared made him realize
there was a definite need for this type of care. Besides prescribing medications
and giving vaccines, Dr. Brennock offers advice on crime prevention, road
conditions, appropriate clothing and food safety, which most people don’t
seriously consider prior to traveling. The most important lesson for any
traveler is, “Be Prepared”.
Please help yourself and others by taking advantage of these services
for your safety and enjoyment before traveling abroad. Dr. Brennock’s
Travel Clinic is located in the Plaza Building in suite 315. Appointments
can be scheduled by calling (949) 364-6000.
