Expat Healthcare Advice for Cairo

Get recommendations for doctors from other expats. Meet them, check them out and see if you like them or not. Most doctors for expats will speak good English, but some doctors in Egypt are pretty arrogant and it may make for a more difficult situation when it comes to getting information out of him/her. Find one you like, get his/her phone number (mobile-cell number) and use it when needed as most doctors do not hire receptionists that speak English well enough to make appts for you.

Emergency Medical Care in Cairo

I only use private hospitals and in general they are fine. The one closest to me has a good ER that I've used on occasion. I have had operations in Egypt. I've been in one ICU once, and I've survived them all. I don't live in America. I don't have insurance. The cost of all of this is extremely affordable. You have to sacrifice in some areas to afford it as well as it is here.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

I don't need to do this.

Prescription Medicines

Most meds are available at the pharmacy and the pharmacists have studied almost as long as doctors, so they can prescribe meds for your case if you can describe what is wrong with you. Good pain killers are difficult if not impossible to get in Egypt. Things like Prozac and sleeping aids are pretty much accessible without prescriptions - especially from small local neighborhood pharmacies. The larger chain pharmacies are more difficult to get things from that are watched at all.
