    Mission Hospital

    Could someone please tell me what you know about Mission Hospital in Bangkok? I have an appointment there and have never heard of it.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if it was ran by the Brits. Social Security made me an appointment there. I spoke with the doctor that does the evualation yesterday to confirm the appointment and he's an American. Thanks for your help.

    I was a patient there in the early 70s with dengue fever. If I remember correctly, it's on Larn Luang Road and not far from the Army race course.

    It is also known as the Bangkok Seventh Day Adventists Hospital.

    They used to have multi tier pricing to better support charity cases. I do not know if that is still the case. All in all, a pretty good hospital but the menu was crap.

    Its my work designated hospital. Only been once, and it was quite OK. A bit less "English friendly" (on the support staff side) that the big name internationals, but the docs were efficient, english speaking and seemed of a good standard. Sorted me out in a jiffy.

    Seventh Day Adventist are vegetarians. Hence the crap food as you say. I was born in one. Used the one in Phuket and it was alright. Needed some sewing up, but just as pricy as Bangkok or International hospitals. Cater to local Thai's on insurance claims.

    Just a Social Security disability physical. They want to find out if my amputated leg has grown back enabeling me to work at my profession. LOL Just another way of wasting tax payer money.

    Used to be mine too; it's new and the staff were friendly and copious, but they had a habbit of making appointments and doing nothing... After two visits with nothing but appointments having been made, I went to Bumrumgrad instead and got some proper treatment straight away...

    I knew a Thai friend who was down for Mission, she went once, didn't like it then altered her SS hospital.

    I wouldn't say it's a bad hospital, it just seemed wierd/disfunctional/badly managed - the doctors (like many hospitals/clinics in Bkk) are usually at other hospitals and only go to Mission for a few hours per week... With so many options in Bkk, you can do better, imo.
    How do I post these pictures???

    Thanks for the info Bettyboo, but I don't have a choice. Social Security made the appointment and they have the say where they want me to have the evualation done. The doctor I spoke to did tell me the Orthepidic doctor didn't come in until 6.00 PM, but he could do the physical tests, I would have to come back at 6.00 for the Orthepidic part. More run around.
