Summary: Expats and global nomads in Saudi Arabia share their experiences with health insurance, healthcare in Saudi Arabia, local hospitals and specialists, quality of medical care and more.

How are healthcare services Saudi Arabia?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Saudi Arabia, they replied:

"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," mentioned another expat living in Riyadh.

"In general I am satisfied with it, however sometimes I feel like they may not know what is wrong with me they make things up," added another expat.
