Doctors And Dentists In Daet

Most doctor surgerys specialise in certain fields which i will try to list in the medical needs catorgory . Also it is not always necessary to have a perscription and the pharmacist’s are quiet helpfull so i advise you go there first .

We dont really see any medical tourists here as such but we do see tourists having medical and dental works done whilst on holiday ! Medical tourists can make an appointment when they arrive but its not really necessary here in Daet , just turn up and wait to be seen.

Dentist’s here are much cheaper than in Manila and of course much cheaper than abroad , so i advise all tourists to get there teeth seen to whilst here or just have them nicely polished .

My recomendation is DRA Jose Lim Guam at the traffic lights behind the traffic enforcement police hut , opposite jolliebee . This highly respeced lady dentist is very skilled and gentle.

Hospitals In Daet

The hospitals in Daet are small to medium size and are conviently dotted around the city . The “free” provincial hospital is on the Bagasbas road , the others are private dr owned hospitals .

All the hospitals are equipped and ready to recieve accident and emergency patients . Unfortunately like most of the philippines there is not an emergency phone number to call an ambulance .

Here in Daet tricycle or motorbike is the fastest way to get to hospital . Although nearly all the hospitals have there own ambulances to transfer you if needed its just a different system here.

Pharmacists In Daet

If your a foriegner on medication or know somebody on medication dont forget to take home some tablets (in moderation of course) as they are expensive abroad .

Ask for what we call original (branded) not the cheaper local ones if they ask you , as some times they offer same tablets but a cheaper brand ! OH and i would not take any ! zero nothing through the middle east , be careful to that !
