Travel medicine
We know the value of your time. Careful travel preparation often entails attention to many small details in a fairly short period. That is why we have virtually any vaccination you may need in stock at all times. In one visit we can also provide most malaria medications, antibiotic kits, altitude illness, motion sickness and many other medications. We offer a variety of other services that may be required such as HIV, tuberculosis and drug screening tests as well as most laboratory testing.

Travel legwear


  • Knee stocking - 40,000 won
  • The graduated support stockings are knitted to apply maximum pressure at the ankles with gradually reducing compression up to the length of the hosiery. The stockings forces blood from tiny surface veins into the deep vein system that carries blood to the heart. In this process, the vein walls are constricted assuring proper vein-valve closure. This prevents back-flow pressure through the legs back to the heart.
