Medical Tourism (Travel For Medical Care)

Step 3. Check References When You Narrow Your Search To One Or More Potential Health Care Providers

Next » « Previous


Ask the doctor or other health care provider and facility you are considering using for references (and contact information). It is particularly useful to ask for references frompeople who were treated for the same procedure you are considering. Ideally, the references also had similar medical and other needs and preferences to yours.

If you are using a Medical Tourism Agency, also ask the agency for references about the health care provider, and, in particular, the treatment or procedure you are considering..

Once you have the references, it is advisable to call the people and speak with them directly. Have a list of questions handy before you call. Among other questions, consider asking a catch-all question such as “Is there anything you would tell your best friend about the doctor or facility that we haven’t discussed?”
