Regional and International Patients

Many of our patients travel from regional or international locations; New Orleans is readily accessible by interstate and is home to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

If you are traveling from a distance that will require an overnight stay there are many hotels that are within close proximity to the Tulane Thyroid Center.  Please note that patients are responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

If you are traveling from outside of the United States contact your country’s Bureau of Consular Affairs or the U.S. State Department (www.travel.state.gov) to see if you need to obtain a travel visa. Please make sure to allow time for your request to be processed. Contact the U.S. State Department or your government consulate if you need assistance.
