Hi,

Does anyone know of a good doctor to see in Buenos Aires? Also, how much would it cost for a tourist? My insurance has just ran out!

Cheers

There are good doctors at the public hospital in Bocca. Its a good hospital as I found out and even El Presidente goes there. no charge,just turn up and take a number. Just west of San Telmo. If you wanted something more private, out the front of this hospital there are several people handing out flyers for various doctorsaround Buenos Aires.
Regards
Carlos

Hi crazylegs,
the best thing to do is to go to a private hospital!
It will cost you like 30 USD, but you will be sure of the service they provide!
here are useful links that could help you to find the best one!!
