Expat Healthcare Advice for Riyadh

If you need medical care, go back to the US or to Europe, if you can afford it. Both medical and dental care are substandard. If you can find doctors trained in the US, that is no assurance that they are qualified. The licensing program and qualifications are sketchy, at best.

Emergency Medical Care in Riyadh

I used Kingdom Hospital, purportedly one of the best, if not the best. It was substandard. I also went to Specialized Medical Center. The staff were even less qualified. Please be careful with your health. I ended up coming back to the US for medical care.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

I returned to the US this past summer so I could get treatment. Outstanding standards in the US.

Prescription Medicines

You can get anything at any corner pharmacy without any prescription. the exception are birth control pills or homonal replacement therapy. They are cheap!

Expat Health Insurance in Saudi Arabia

My sponsor always paid for my insurance. I ended paying an extra amount for higher end insurance so I could go the Kingdom Hospital, and found out that the medical staff there are not adequately trained.
