What are medical services in Almaty like?

Answer this Question

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

"Medical services in Almaty, are a mix of public and private healthcare facilities. The city has several hospitals, clinics, and medical centers that offer a range of services, including general medicine, surgery, and specialized care. Public hospitals are often crowded and may have outdated equipment, while private clinics tend to have more modern facilities and English-speaking staff. It is recommended for foreigners to have comprehensive medical insurance and to seek treatment at private healthcare facilities for better quality care. Pharmacies are widely available, but it is advisable to bring any necessary prescription medications from home, as some medications may not be available or may be of different quality. Emergency services are available, but response times may be slow, and ambulance staff may not speak English," remarked another expat in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
