Hi!

I’m Ashleigh McCullagh-Cheung, the Travel Clinic physician. I am a keen traveller and a mom of two young kids. Along with my husband, we live in Dundas.

I hold a medical degree from Queen’s University Belfast, UK (2008). I trained as a family physician in picturesque Cornwall, England. After family medicine training, I pursued a Master’s in Global Health and Development (University College London, UK 2014).

 

I obtained a Certificate in Travel Health, through the International Society of Travel Medicine (2019). After having my daughter, I decided to change gears from full-time family practice to travel health.

"My travel health consult with Dr. McCullagh-Cheung was a great experience. Dr. McCullagh-Cheung was very well prepared and knowledgeable, did a great job explaining any health risks and recommending precautions for my upcoming trip."

M. H., 19

“As a first time international-traveller, Dr. McCullagh-Cheung made this process very smooth. She was informative, took the time to discuss my options and made me feel well-prepared for my trip.”

A. K., 21

“I came to Dr. McCullagh-Cheung in regards to my trip to South East Asia. She was very thorough and detailed indicating the different diseases in the countries I was visiting, prevention methods, and the right medication and vaccination to receive. From this, I was also able to receive my vaccinations through her."

Pharmacy Partnerships

Stay tuned! For your convenience, we are partnering with pharmacies across the Greater Hamilton and Toronto area. This means that after you have your online consult, you would visit one of our partners to pick up any travel health prescriptions and receive shots. The benefit of going to a partner pharmacy is the peace of mind that they keep travel medications and vaccines in stock and routinely administer vaccines, so you don't need to worry about multiple trips to the pharmacy. Of course, you are welcome to use your usual pharmacy also.

Health Insurance

Although travel medicine is not covered under OHIP, many extended health insurance plans will provide reimbursement for travel vaccines and medications. If you have a health spending account, this can be used to cover the cost of the doctor's visit itself.
