Going to the Doctor

Each resort has a doctor and there are various hospitals where you can receive medical treatment. If you need x-rays or blood tests, you will be taken to the nearest hospital. All the doctors speak English at basic level and their skills are similar to those of doctors in any other country. If you need a hospital, it is better to choose a private clinic because you will be treated faster and the quality and facilities are better. If you suffer from a chronic disease, it is advisable to speak with the doctor immediately upon arrival at the resort, so that he/she knows the situation and is prepared in case of an incident and can provide you with the necessary medical care.
