Still don't understand the hate. The vagueness of the medical system is, so far, outmatched by the vagueness of your warnings.
I do agree that the current state of US health care is sad, though. Anyway, I hope I'm not being too rude in saying that informed people don't buy such arguments as yours, wildfk, as they're completely unsubstantiated.
I've removed the last couple of posts which could be construed as personal attacks.
Please return the thread to its original topic - thanks guys.
if the best you've ever had is US healthcare then you may not according to the above notice the difference.
So, I guess we now have 3 questions.
What is our US healthcare experience?
What is our Bumrungrad experience?
And now, by which healthcare shall we judge all others?
To where should we run to have our ailments checked?

It is very sad that many posters, don't seem to understand that who someone is what qualifications they have or even their motivation is completely irrelevant to the point.
With Thai healthcare the facts and overview speak for themselves.
There is NO CUSTOMER COMEBACK to speak of.
Training is inadequate - not just in some Doctors but in support staff too
Great-Looking hospital does NOT mean great care or eve ability to care.
Trying to dichotomise the issue by comparing with one country or another doesn't work.
in the sets healthcare is in general is poor between 2 and 4 million people have little or no access to healthcare.
The UK system is groaning due to underfunding.
But in these systems, there is public access to information and there are government and non- government bodies that look into practices at all levels, as well ethics and training of staff. Pick up any pale and you can find evidence of their work - in Thailand? NoThailand does NONE of this effectively. There even one case of murder where 2 Doctors were accused of having a complainant shot.
It is not ME you should be addressing about this subject - if you want to know more DO SOME RESEARCH - you will be horrified.
wildfk, what's with dragging up a thread that's almost 4 years old?
