Chiang Mai Health Question
Hi! Can anyone help me with a medical question in Thailand? My husband and I are going to be in and around Chiang Mai for the month of February riding rental motorcycles. I would like to get some surgery done while I am there since I've been told that the hospitals are excellent.
I've tried emailing the Ram Hospital twice and can't get a reply from them. I would like to set up an appointment to have the surgery.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can connect with them? Or, recommend a dermotologic surgeon? The email I have for them came off their website:http:// THE SMART CHOICE FOR GLOBAL HEALTHCARE Ramkhamhaeng Hospital
Thanks for any help you can send my way!
A question at www.rideasia.net might lead to a result.
I needed med. help too when I was there and the easiest method I found- enlist the services/help of a local Thai to save you the many headaches I went initially through as I could not speak Thai.
I'd ask the owner of the the B&B or a front office staff member at the hotel you have may have booked.
You are better off using the Bangkok hospitals such as Bumrungrad or Bangkok General Hospital. The doctors all speak English and most have trained in the States or other first world countries and are board certified in their specialties.
When I worked there in managed healthcare there were very few hospitals that we used, but these were two of them.
If the staff of the hospital do not speak English I suggest you give that establishment a wide berth unless you are in really dire straits.
The Ramkhamhaeng website "travel" page, [url=http://www.ramhospital.com/Travel.htm]THE SMART CHOICE FOR GLOBAL HEALTHCARE Home
includes a direct tel number in Bangkok +66/ 7831-8376.
The Bangkok facility can probably tell you how to contact/ tel the Chiang Mai facility
A Google search on "Thailand dermatologist" will get you a slew of website link/ options.
