Very nice hospital with state of the art equipment.
The international clinic is totally understaffed and the employees are overworked. Usually have to call 10+ times to get through. When you get a chance to speak with them they are usually trying to juggle a bunch of things at once and are unable to give good service.
Surgeon seemed to do a good job on my surgery but seemed more interested in getting me out of his office quickly rather than giving me necessary details. Important things were not communicated.
You'd think with such high prices and a sterling reputation that they would hire a few more workers. Disappointing.

They lack in the ability to understand and perform a basic health check up for work and send foreigners all over to separate buildings and departments all over the campus. It took over 2 hours to do and I had to return for another special appointment. Furthermore, the signage for Family Medicine is so vague an not clear it takes the average person a few minutes or more to find the place as it's in a hallway corridor far from the international patient department. They were also not clear what an employee health check screening was.
However, they have medical cards and now and the international service and nurses are kind and respectful and the cardio dept is far from the main building but once you learn the layout it's easier and most staff and doctors are kind.
