Quality of Healthcare in Sihanoukville, Cambodia for Sihanoukville

Specifically, the International Clinics are preferred. CT Clinic can be good or not so good. My doctor here is Russian. Here, 4 years of college and a score of 50% on the final exam qualifies a Cambodian to become a doctor. Best to avoid of course.

Emergency Services in Sihanoukville

About a mile. Hospitals are limited to the International Clinics and CT Clinic. All are open 24/7 and the health care, of course, varies from poor to good. I assume they are private.

Expats Travel to Bangkok for Better Healthcare

For serious health issues many people go to Bangkok, Thailand. I haven't needed to go but I've heard the care is top notch.

Availability of Prescription Meds in Cambodia

I can walk into any pharmacy and buy anything they have in stock. No prescription needed. What they carry varies considerably, but the standard meds, ibuprofen, anti-biotics, et cetera are readily available and quite inexpensive. I simply walk in, say what I need, and write it down clearly if they don't understand English well enough.

Cost of Healthcare & Health Insurance in Cambodia

I don't have health insurance. The cost of medical care is quite low. A typical consultation is typically $20. PS I would no longer recommend Sihanoukville. 10,000+ Chinese have moved there and buying up hotels, guesthouses, restaurants, and land. It's not the pleasant beach town it used to be.
