Required information
Please make your appointment at least one day ahead. When arranging an appointment, please provide:
  • the patient's name as it appears on the passport (last, first, middle)
  • patient's gender
  • patient's address
  • patient's date of birth
  • direct patient telephone number
  • patient's email address (if available)
  • a brief explanation of the current medical problem (in English)
  • the preferred date of appointment
Efficient scheduling
In most cases, doctors provide both diagnosis and treatment within the same patient visit. Doctors usually can report diagnostic test results to patients one or two days after testing is completed. The schedule of appointments for tests, physician consultation and treatment can often be compressed into a short period for international patients. This means less time away from home, less expense and more efficient use of patients' and family members' time.
