Expat Healthcare Advice for Bangkok

Compare hospital costs for same procedure. Use hospital web sites to review medical bios of their doctors. Consultations are inexpensive and a good way to evaluate doctors. Use private hospitals for faster service and less waiting times. Check availability of 3rd party billing for in-patient procedures.

Emergency Medical Care in Bangkok

There are many private hospitals close in Bangkok; I use four ranging in distances of about 1 to 10 kilometers. Bangkok Medical Center; Bumrungrad; Mayo; and Vibhavadi. ER services so far have been very good and inexpensive. Traffic is a problem, so I have taken a taxi when possible to save time. Hospital care has been professional and more user friendly than US. I always use private, if available, for faster service.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

I have not needed to travel outside of Bangkok to see specialists or for serious health issues.

Prescription Medicines

So far all the meds I have needed are available locally; if not in drug stores then at the hospitals. Some are available without prescription while others are not; not sure why? Non generics are just as expensive as in the US.
