Lone Island : Medical
There are a number of international standard hospitals to be found in Phuket as well as numerous medical clinics, dental clinics and even a hair transplant center. Medical emergencies are handled professionally at the major hospitals and minor health complaints can be treated at the many clinics that provide services at reasonable rates.
Many visitors have discovered that dental procedures in Thailand are performed by foreign trained and educated Thai dentists who utilize the latest methods and procedures at a fraction of the cost for this type of work in the US or UK.
For medical procedures requiring an extended stay in Phuket the Thai Immigration department offers medical visas.
