Introduction

As an introduction to medical tourism advise we are constantly updating information to give you the best possible information of the medical services Thailand has to offer

We are not a medical company and as such do not give any medical advice. Also we do not seek any financial reward or income in promoting Thailand medical care and services

We will however promote Thailand as we are a Thai company and from our other pages you will have learned that our business is connecting people in a personal way. That's why Thai personal Connections is our name.  However we do recognize that many wish to make savings in receiving medical treatment in Thailand yet at the same time find love and marriage either during or after your chosen medical treatment

We mearly wish to make you aware of the outstanding quality and value Thai hospitals and clinics have to offer in every respect. From Modern buildings with exceptional comfort and hospitality to state of the art facilities provide by highly trained and experienced health care providers

The fact that the standards are so high is a benefit to your health

The fact the cost is so low by comparison to your own country the benefit is to your wealth

Background

Many know Thailand and Thai people for natural beauty, charm and great value. Less well known is that medical care and certainly private medical care in Thailand is a world leader in many areas

The standards of hospitals, clinics and care is some of the best in the world and that's without making any measure of costs and savings in receiving treatment. The choice seems to be endless in medical treatments and care available from the very large ultra modern hospitals as well as the small private clinic

       

Medical treatment and care is very well regulated and controlled by the Thai government and leads the world in control of patients welfare through training and regulation of all medical staff

Many still see Thailand as a third world country and maybe forgiven for their thoughts but in medicine and medical care Thailand is outstanding

Many think doctors learn and train in the USA or Europe. You may be surprised to learn just how the opposite is true with many doctors now coming to Thailand to learn

Thailand has many teaching hospitals attached to universities and is a major contributor to medical science and research world wide

Why Thailand

Throughout Asia Thailand is leading the way and as such has become N0 1 in the world for medical tourism treatment and is at the very top as destination in the global medical market. This has only been achieved through reputation, high levels of service satisfaction yet low costs. It is with these values we relate to our own principals of trade in so much as we are the first to recognise that growth can only be achieved through quality of service and customer care

Thailand excels in bringing together world class services and dominates the market through cost savings to the client with excellent services and facilities

Why have so many used medical treatment and romance

There are many reasons why millions of foreigners come to Thailand to seek treatment yet the shear volume of medical tourists suggests it is a good thing. Some of the reasons may include the below

First there is the attraction of cost savings and depending on the treatment you have the cost may be a fraction of what it would cost in your own country. The savings range from 20 - 50% in most areas of treatment leaving a budget to take in amazing Thailand for either convalescence, recreation or finding a future wife

Second the quality of health care provision being second to none and world renowned is a huge factor. Nobody would wish you to save money at the expense of your health but the standard of surgery and care justifies the decision alone for most, the cost saving being secondary to consideration. The quality of doctors surgeons and nursing staff is second to none.

Several hospital have accreditation to JCI and most meet ISO 9002 requirements. With over 400 hospitals catering for medical tourists and numerous clinics the choice is what makes Thailand number 1 in the world. Hundreds of doctors and specialists have sort further training and understand in the USA and Europe not only to familiarize with other techniques but also greater understanding of the expectations of service for the foreigner

Most medical staff at all levels have good understanding of English and are able to communicate with you personally and one small point is most don't want to leave the hospital as the hospital food is so good!

Finally Thailand has developed high standards of tourism infrastructure making it one of the number one destinations for relaxation, family fun and entertainment in some of the most beautiful settings and beaches in the world. Being sub tropical the diversity of plants, vegetation and wildlife is amazing in its self. The beauty and magic only exceeded by the wonders of Thailand and the splendor and beauty of its ladies. Smiles and a welcome to die for and memories that only long to be repeated Thailand has so much to give and everything to share in taking care of your health, your heart and your future happiness

Imagine how good it would be to choose your medical treatment requirements with some of the best in the world and yet save considerable sums of money. That said and done now imagine what it would be like to recuperate in peaceful rest with a  tropical island or the in the arms of a wonderful loving wife

With these excellent achievements and credentials Thailand has become the hub of Asia's health care provision as well as the number 1 tourist destination. Thailand has also to its claim more successful Asian / western marriage success that any other Asian country

Moreover the north and in particular Udon Thani has the greatest number of successful marriages with foreigners than any two of the major tourist areas put together. That's why we are here. Right in the heart of it and to take care of your heart too
