Best local hospital for a Gastroscopy

Post by arjay » October 25, 2018, 6:28 pm

Any suggestions which hospital and which consultant to use for a Gastroscopy/endoscopy?

In an ideal world I would go to Bumrungrad, but to avoid the hassles of travel and accommodation in Bangkok, would prefer to get it done in Udon. In the distant past I have used, I think it was Dr Olam, who worked at the government hospital and did private surgeries at AEK.

I had an Endoscopy about nine months ago I was referred to the big public hospital by the military hospital why I don't know as I believe they also perform the same service.

Woman Doctor at the public hospital was very professional post examination a junior Doctor referred to as Professor?

It would appear she only does this service once a week on Fridays am and see's twelve patients.

The only down side as far as I was concerned was the throat spray was not strong enough to combat the intrusion.

Thanks for the info Macca. Did you get given a printed report with coloured photos? (I did from Bumrungrad).

No one with any experience of having it done at AEK?

Yes printed report with color photo's and an explanation cost was 2100 baht not expensive in my opinion, compared to Australia.
