oI think my overall travel concert was fantastic, I have no nothing bad to say about this provider. Read it as a whole however, I was unable to give me any consult pricing information because I wasn't going through insurance initially, and misinformed me about the value availability of the yellow fever vaccine, and misinformed me about what charges would happen if I didn't put my insurance through. I think better communication with other departments would be very beneficial to this facility!

We were so happy to get a quick appointment in the Travel Clinic. We really appreciated that Dr. Sanchez had travelled to Africa and Naipaul and could speak candidly about her health and travel experience. We value her approach and her expertise.

Dr. Sanchez is so kind and caring. When I saw her this time for staph infections and osteomyelitis she prayed with me at the end of my visit, as I was upset at having to do infusion therapy again. She is the most knowledgeable, kind Dr. that is on my care team.

Dr Sanchez was very knowledgeable and friendly. I left the appointment feeling like I'd learned a ton about my condition and felt far more comfortable about traveling in the future.

We saw Dr Sanchez because we are traveling over seas and needed additional vaccinations and boosters. She provided excellent care and explained what vaccinations we needed and didn't need to keep our self's healthy when traveling. She came prepared and was able to answer all our questions. She is an great asset to Froedtert.

Excellent medical advice re: out of country trip - However, the cost was "5X" what my wife paid, at a different provider. Same advice, same meds... substantial cost differential.

I found Dr. Joyce Sanchez to be extremely knowledgeable, thorough, respectful and prepared! One of the most professional and informative sessions I have ever had with a physician! Thank you! (PS The medical assistants were also very friendly and respectful as well!)
