How are healthcare services Coronado?

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

"It is not like others want you to believe. It is not up to US standards. The one private hospital wants you to believe they are part of the Johns Hopkins network and they are not. Clinics are often store fronts, crowded and dirty. Equipment is old. ," commented one expat living in Coronado, Panama.

"Make sure you can fly back to the US for health care. You can not get health care in Panama unless you have cash. We were held at gunpoint in Panama till we came up with the CASH following my husband's surgery. Did not matter that we had retired military health insurance," wrote one expat.

"See Dr. Levy, even if you have no insurance his office visits are only $15 and he is a very nice Dr who will send you to the appropriate specialists. Also there are a number of alternative doctor's locally who are not expensive either and are very effective if you are into that type of medicine. I have not renewed any medications since I arrived so I do not know about prescription drugs yet. But in terms of just seeing someone because you are not feeling well, Dr. Levy seems to be the place to go. And his fee is such it does not even make sense to claim insurance for the visit," commented one expat who moved to Coronado.

"Coronado offers a variety of healthcare services to its residents. The city has a public hospital, Hospital de Coronado, which provides general medical services, emergency care, and specialized services such as cardiology, neurology, and obstetrics. Additionally, there are several private clinics in the area that offer a range of medical services, including general practice, dentistry, and optometry. Coronado also has a number of pharmacies that provide prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs. For those seeking alternative treatments, there are several spas and wellness centers in the area that offer massage, acupuncture, and other holistic therapies," said one expat.
