Expat Healthcare Advice for Nueva Gorgona

Don't be afraid. Many doctors speak some English and the care is excellent. We never had to wait for service and we're always treated great.

Emergency Medical Care in Nueva Gorgona

The San Fernando Clinic is an emergency clinic about 10 minutes from us. My husband got 14 stitches there once and it was as good an experience as it could be. The whole visit plus follow up was $135. Can't imagine how much it would have been in the US. I went to the emergency room at the San Carlos Social Security hospital once with severe back pain that turned out to be sciatica. I saw a doctor, got X-rays which were given to me on a cd and had two IV pain medicine treatments. All for $31 and no waiting. I was very happy with the service and how I was treated.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

I am right now looking into cataract surgery and will be seeing a specialist in La Chorrera.

Prescription Medicines

We are able to get our prescriptions at any pharmacy without a written prescription. We still get most of our drugs in he US because we have insurance but if we did not have insurance they would be cheaper in Panama.

Expat Health Insurance in Panama

We don't have insurance in Panama because we are in good health and healthcare is so affordable we don't feel the need for insurance. Since it is part of my retirement benefit, we still have insurance in the US however the cataract surgery I am looking into might well be less expensive in Panama without insurance than in the US with copays so I am in the process of comparing this.
