Hi. I am visiting Chiangmai late July. I need some minor surgery done on a toe.
Any recommendations for a doctor or clinic? Cheers Don

I would start with Chiang Mai Ram Hospital. They have a full range of services, and are used to treating English-speaking patients. I have friends who lived in Chiang Mai for many years, and they were quite pleased there.

You're spoilt for choice of good quality private hospitals and clinics here. Ram has been for years the de facto choice for many expats due to it's convenient location and farang-friendly services, but they tend to sting you at the pharmacy window. I prefer Sri Phat Medical Center just a few blocks south of Ram. The newer Bangkok Hospital out on the ring highway east of town is getting a good reputation although not the cheapest. If you just need a minor consultation / procedure check out Dr. Sharin (Thai/Indian, educated in New York) who does morning and evening hours at his clinic SE corner of the old city.

Thanks Captain Bob. I may go to Dr. Sharin first for consultation, then make a decision. Cheers Don
