    Hello all,

    Wondering if you could help. I think I need to go see the doctor, but being in Bangkok and not too clued up on how to go about it I thought I'd ask those who'd know much more.

    Do I just arrive into a hospital and ask to see the Thai equivalent of a GP? or, I don't know, I'm a bit lost...

    Thanks for the forthcoming help!!

    Anthony

    Yes just go to the hospital. If you are from America be prepared to be pleasantly suprised. At admissions they'll send you to the right doc.

    The most expensive hospital for foreigners costs a fraction of what health care does in the States.

    I can recommend the Payathai or Siriraj hospitals.A friend of mine had life saving surgery at the latter and is highly complimentary of its standards.It must be good as The King had his treatment there.
    At the Payathai I was seen at reception, had my blood pressure and temp taken and then escorted to the correct dept by what I can only describe as a hotel concierge.The hospital was spotless and most of the staff and certainly the doctors speak English.It is also very reasonably priced.Best of all there is no waiting.
