Chances are you will get the same doctor, there as AEK. They all seem to do double duty, one way or another.

When I look on the information page "Udon Thani hospitals, clinics and Pharmacies", there is an Army hospital that is not on the road to Nong Khai but a "Dr. Phairoj Hospital" one that is....
Also, "Bangkok Hospital" is " Panyavejinter Hospital", correct? They are just joining the BKK hospital group or finally taking on the name officially....??
I have had mixed experiences at AEK. I went to Wattana first and did not get satisfactory treatment but did get proper help at AEK. I saw a "specialist" at AEK but she could not tell me the class of a drug she was prescribing... I got what I needed but ...
Then, again at AEK, I had to go there to get an injection for treatment from a specialist at Bumrungrad (couldn't get down to BKK) and was unhappy with the professionalism or lack of that, by the doctor at AEK. I got what I needed but ....
Now, I am possibly facing a pretty simple surgery and saw the ONLY doc at AEK who does it and I was very put-off by him in many ways....he doesn't do laparoscopy (go to Bangkok if you want that, he says), he was kind of an odd bird. I don't know how to say it exactly but I just did not want him doing surgery on me.
Is it true that no one does laparoscopy here in Udon?? I want to look into the military hospital but am a little worried b/c I am foreign. I think a skilled doc is most important but some privacy for me is also important. There is a bit of an animal in a zoo feeling for me here and to be vulnerable AND in that position is not something I want to do, really. It might not be possible.
Sorry to the OP about this thread not being so helpful about BKK Hospital here in Udon. By it's former name I have heard some good things about it but have not yet looked into the hospital. I am trying to dig up info on former threads but it takes time and digging and my questions are burning

Eye surgery - Rutin Eye Hospital in Bangkok. I've had cataract surgery there; went from 20/50 to 20/20. Had a very respected Dr. here in Udon tell me if you can afford it don't trust your eyesight to anyone
