When we asked members in Portugal if they typically need to travel to see specialists, they replied...

"Specialists in every field are no more than 30 mins away. Serious health issues are handled at our private hospital, 10 mins away. Care is quickly provided and done well. Tests are given immediately and results available the next day," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Lisbon, Portugal.

"Portugal's largest cities, such as Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Braga and Faro, are generally considered to have the highest concentration of medical specialists in the country. Other cities with notable concentrations of specialists include Figueira Da Foz, Guarda, Evora, Maia and Trancoso. Additionally, Algarve is an area well known for its top-level medical care and its range of highly skilled specialists. Generally speaking, Portugal's major cities are considered to have the highest concentration of medical specialists in the country," commented one expat who made the move to Portugal.
