Cambodia doctors

If you peruse forums online you’ll find that Phnom Penh hospitals get a bad rap for the state of its healthcare. In fact, most people will say you should head to Thailand for anything more than a routine doctor visit. 

These sentiments are definitely exaggerated. There are plenty of quality medical facilities here. You just have to know where to look. In an emergency, private hospitals are the way to go. In non-urgent cases try looking around for a specialist with a good reputation. Foreigners usually steer clear of state hospitals, with perhaps Calmette being an exception in some cases.

If you have traveller’s insurance, or get coverage through your work, make sure you know which facilities are covered by your provider. 

Not covered? Not a huge deal, at least in Cambodia. Care is quite cheap compared to many other countries across the world. We’ve also given a cost rating to the facilities on the list below.
