    Can anyone recommend a good doctor / clinic in Bangkok, preferably in the Koh San area. I believe I have an ear infection and am due to fly to Cape Town tomorrow - hence the urgency.

    Thanks for and advice.

    Hi Luke,

    Not around KSR -- I'd suggest jumping in a cab and heading to one of the big hospitals -- eg Bumrungrad on Sukhumvit Soi 3

    Hey Luke,

    Sorry as I doubt this response reached you in time to help, but perhaps someone else will read it and get some use from this information.

    As Somtam says, Bumrungrad Hospital on Sukhumvit Soi 3 is a first-class international quality hospital with English-speaking doctors and staff. Two others that I've used in the Bangkok area and consider to also be very good are Bangkok Nursing in the Silom/Convent Road area not far from Pat Pong, and Samitivej in the Sukhumvit Soi 39/49 area.

    In Chiang Mai, try Chiang Mai Ram hospital. There are more details in one of the Travelfish articles on health care in Thailand. Cheers.

    I actually used Bumrungrad Hospital myself for quite an embarrasing reason.

    My friend I was travelling with was snoring loudly on our last night in bangkok. I decided to use my silicon ear plugs. However, in the morning I found that my earplug had somehow travelled through my ear canal and was so deep i could not get it out.

    I quickly woke my friend, understandably stressed as we were travelling to Kanchanaburi in a few hours, my friend could only see the funny side. I hurriedly caught a taxi to the hospital.

    The administration side of things took a while (about half an hour) and seemed unecessary, however the service was great. The hospital was more of a 5 star hotel than a hospital, with its marble floors and mercedes parked outside the foyer. I got the earplug removed, and my ears cleaned out for little more than 1300 Baht. And we got to Kanchanaburi on time.
