    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Ok, this one's a little unusual for me, but can anyone recommend a dermatologist in HCMC? I'm travelling long term and have a couple of new moles I should probably get checked out sooner rather than later.

    Also, can anyone give me an idea of the cost involved in seeing an English speaking doctor here about such things?

    I'm planning on going onto Cambodia overland after I'm done here, so won't be going through Bangkok (which would otherwise be the logical place to get medical stuff seen to).

    International SOS Clinic

    that's all I know, what I found on the search engines - I understand the International Clinics (where they speak English) are not especially cheap, good luck

    You might call your local consulate and ask them if they can make a referral - what nationality are you?

    I'm an Aussie. I never would have thought to get a referral from my embassy here...

    Maybe I could take a bi-lingual Viet local with me to a regular doctor and have them translate?

    I don't want to blow hundreds of dollars on a simple doc's appointment.
