    Me and my partner wanted a full body check up. We book online before our holiday which was very easy to do. Got their at 8.30am had all the tests left at 11.00am went back the same day at 2pm to see the doctor and discuss the results. The result were already printed out and ready to take home. I had to wait for two of my results of which they said woukd email me when I got back to the UK.they were their all ready to print off to add to my file.
    The staff were amazing so friendly the hospital and the equipment were state of the arts so impressive.
    I would 100% recommend it was much cheaper than we thought. Will be going back in 3 years to have another full body check up.

    Treatment was certainly at or above the level of dermatological treatment I have experienced in the US at a fraction of the cost generally incurred. As a result, more could be accomplished within a reasonable health care budget. My only complaint is that attempting to book followup through the hospital's web site produced no result. I think that they need to pay greater attention to their website.

    I had a colonoscopy procedure performed and the Doctor spoke perfect English and did a great job explaining everything and answering my questions. The procedure went smoothly and was no different than in the United States except there seemed to be less red tape and it was considerably less expensive. My only negative was the prescription medications were more expensive in the hospital than they were from a pharmacy outside the Hospital. I plan on going back for my next procedure when the time comes.

    Excellent communication prior to my appointment. When I visited for the first time I was made to feel welcome and was seen promptly. The surgeon discussed the procedure with me in a very informative and caring way. The nurses are wonderful and the hospital itself is brand new and so well designed. I would totally recommend this place.

    The same annual checkup i got at Ram, is done at McCormick Hospital--Ram charges 15,700 baht, McCormick charges 3500 baht!! The doctor was impressive. The cashiers were pain in ass. My international insurance had sent them a pre-authorization a week ahead of my visit--alerting them i was coming. Cashiers tried to make me pay cash repeatedly. I called my case manager in USA while at cashiers--and he emailed them another pre-authorization. They could not find either of them. If i had not kept my email from case manager for pre-authorization, i would have been forced to pay cash. So i am hesitant about going back again. Between the exorbitant cost, and the administration not paying attention to pre-authorization contacts from insurance--i am not sure i will return.

Chiang Mai Ram Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in northern Thailand, so it’s well known and easy to find. The interiors are modern and have been recently renovated. The hospital has lots of modern and unique equipment. The staff were all very nice and friendly, I don’t have any complaints at all from my visit.
