How are healthcare services Thailand?
When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Thailand, they replied:
"Unfortunately, there is very limited quality health care options in this immediate area. There are a few clinics but with very bad reputations. There is one reputable hospital in Krabi town (about a half hour away) called Krabi Nakharin International Hospital. On the other hand, Bangkok as some of the 10 ten hospitals in the world. Bumrungrad International being the preferred as they actually have a wing with English speaking doctors,"
added another expat.
"Compare hospital costs for same procedure. Use hospital web sites to review medical bios of their doctors. Consultations are inexpensive and a good way to evaluate doctors. Use private hospitals for faster service and less waiting times. Check availability of 3rd party billing for in-patient procedures,"
commented one expat who moved to Bangkok.
"Healthcare here is less than deductibles in US! Crazy inexpensive. 3 x-rays, doctor visit and 1 prescription for $50,"
said an expat in Phayao.
"The healthcare front liners and the facility from private hospitals and government hospitals are very accommodating when it comes to immediate needs. The country's tagline "Amazing Thailand" speaks for itself,"
commented one expat living in Bangkok, Thailand.
"As noted, I do not have health insurance because the cost of walk-in care is unbelievably cheap. Additionally, most doctors, particularly at hospitals, are western-trained, so the level of service is just as good as the States,"
added another expat.
"Excellent healthcare. Doctors are knowledgeable and personable. Hospital well run and efficient,"
commented one expat who moved to Chiang Mai.
