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.

I simply walk in, say what I need, and write it down clearly if they don't understand English well enough.

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.
