What are medical services in Panama City like?

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

"Health care in Panama exemplifies that of a small, developing country. The public system is very hit-or-miss, ranging from bad to terrible. The private system is adequate, but expensive for those coming from countries with universal health care systems," commented one expat living in Panama City, Panama.

"Many expats get travel insurance but that is expensive. I have MAPFRE which is from Spain, covers everything I need and is beyond reasonable. I pay $31.50 per month and $3 dr. visit. The descuento jubilado here is another great savings," added another expat.
