Frequently Asked Questions
What is Medical Tourism?
Medical tourism is the act of traveling to other coutries to obtain medical, dental or cosmetic care. A combination of many factors has lead to the recent increase in popularity of medical tourism: high costs of healthcare in industrialized nations, waiting list, ease and affordability of international travel, improving technology and standards of care in many countries of the world.
What should I tell my Doctor?
We encourage our patients to discuss their plans with their primary physician. While most physicians are familiar with the concept of medical tourism, it may be necessary for you to help educate them further on the proposition and share some of our educational materials. It is not uncommon for a physician's initial reaction to be skeptical, although we find that doctors generally become more receptive to the idea once they look into the actual hospitals, physician credentials and overall price differential.
