Hi. We have been offered an option of moving to Trinedad with my husbands work. My 6 yr old sun was diagnosed with cancer Jan 2013. He has had treatment and is now in remission. He still has 3 monthly scans and I think that we would negotiate to come back to the US for these. However I want to no how reliable you feel the pediatricians and medical facilities are in general as I would like to think they are knowledgable enough to be on the ball with his recent condition. I would be very grateful for anyones opinion. Thanks

Do not goto to Trinidad if you or your family require any continuing medical care.

Most Trinis that can afford it leave for any type of medical care beyond the common cold.

It's not quite that bad. As you have the option of returning to the US for his monthly scans, I recommend you do so. In addition, you should ask your US doctor to help locate a doctor in Trinidad who could be a support for your child while you are there. Private medical facilities are better (in my direct experience) than the public clinics and hospitals. The medical care continues to improve over the years.

Thank you for that. I feel a little more confident about it.
