Dui Dui, the least expensive place in town is the Army Hospital. I do those tests 1-2 times a year, and they are very efficient there. Make sure you go to the Physical Check-Up department in the first building to the right of the main hospital entrance. Arrive at 7:30, they will take blood there, then you'll return in the afternoon after 2 PM to see the doctor for your results. It's all done in that particular department, so there's no waiting in long queues like those in the main wing of the hospital or it's lab. You can ask for Jeab and tell her Patrick sent you, or just see any nurse if you prefer. They are very accommodating and actually cheerful!

Dui Dui, when you enter the department there are package deals describing the tests and prices, then when you get up to the nurse's desk she will have another laminated price list on her desk with a full description and price of all tests which are available. I don't know exactly what you want included in your test package, but between you and the nurse the two of you can pick and choose what is best for you. There's zero pressure and the nurses are very helpful and informed. Each year I have complete blood work done and I add some additional tests for specific things that concern me. I include the EKG, chest x-ray and an upper/lower abdomen ultrasound. I have paid as little as 1600 baht and as much as 4000, so it really depends on the number of tests that you add on. In my earlier years here I went to three of the private hospitals and I always felt like I was really being gouged and they weren't really after my best interests, but only after my money. You will not have that feeling when you go to the Army Hospital. I am totally relaxed when I go there and everyone treats me with dignity and respect. The tests you are looking for my be well under 1600 baht, but you have to go there to find out. There's no obligation, so if you don't like it you can walk out, but I think you will be genuinely pleased with the prices and service there. If you haven't registered with that hospital as yet, the nurse may send you over to another department to do that, but it's not a big deal. You may want to take your passport just in case. Good luck and God's speed my friend!

Just to add to Semps post, what I like about the check ups there is when the results are through , about 10 days later normally, if there is anything on the report that concerns you, you have an opportunity to discuss them with a Dr if you so wish, not included in initial cost, but not expensive, I think I paid 300bht.
Vote Conservative, vote Boris, you know it makes sense .

A vote for anyone else increases the chance of a Marxist government
