Thailand Publc Hospitals Kevin McGivern


Public Hospitals in Thailand

Why consider a public hospital?

The primary reason has traditionally been the low cost. This has gone through a change as non Thais are now charged a higher price than locals.

Thailand has many excellent public hospitals.

Our favorite would be Ramathibodi Hospital in Bangkok.

Ramathibodi Hospital is the university hospital of Mahidol University, respected as perhaps the top medical school in Thailand.

I went to the Ramathibodi Skin Laser Center within the hospital for many years to treat my often present basal-cell carcinoma.

One procedure reqired more than 100 stitches on my face
The results are invisible!!!! No scars at all.
Very professional care at an extemely reasonable cost.

Highly recommended.

Of course, being a public hospital, serving foriegn patients is not their priority and comunication can sometimes be a problem. If possible, it's always best to have a Thai friend along to assist.
