    Queen Sirikit Hospital Sattahip - Opinions

    Looking for first hand experiences here.

    I have been inside and it is a no frills set up compared to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital's lush marbled hallways , as I could give a shat about that.

    The father in law was admitted there last year for a few weeks with a pretty serious condition, he and family was very happy with the staff and the treatment.

    The Royal title and proximity to the military would suggest that it has to be one of better ones in Chonburi.

    It's a "Thai for Thais hospital" and not conceived (nor priced) to cater for falangs looking for opulence and higher level of resort hotel services
    The wife is of the opinion that speaking English might be a little difficult.

    Most of these hospitals have an English speaking liaison officer who should be able to answer most of your questions

    A medical admin. friend of mine said that the best and most affordable falang friendly hospital (medical not cosmetic) in the region is in Si Ratcha - can try and find out the name if you like

    ^ Thanks , I think the Somdet in Sirachaha may be the one you're mentioning as the others there have become a blantant rip off as well (i.e. Phayathai and Samitajev)

    There's another thread about this place. I had excellent service there - put in a private waiting room with 2 attendants who escorted me at all times (busted knee). They allowed me to take the x-rays away with me.

    The Queen Sirikit Hospital is okay, doubt I would go there for a life threatening operation though, then again offhand I can't think of a hospital in Thailand that I would want to go to for a life threatening operation.

    I had a hernioplasty done there and despite it's appearance Sirikit is an excellent hospital. Take someone who speaks Thai with you, it'll make finding what you want much easier. A private room is also essential and that will cost you an additional 2250 baht a day, which is practically nothing by hospital standards. Sirikit is run by the Thai Navy and many of the same doctors who practice there moonlight at the "for profit" hospitals in and around Pattaya. I had health insurance that reimbursed me for the operation and could have had it done at one of the Pattaya hospitals if I had wanted to, but I've found the staff at Sirikit much more concerned about my health and less concerned about my finances.

    The Thai Navy also runs a clinic/hospital that's open to the public (including farangs) near downtown Sattahip. Just to the right of the base entrance near downtown and the beach. (At the Y in the road in Sattahip, go to the right, go to the end, which is the beach, and turn right. You'll see the guards in front of you, but the hospital entrance in on your right just before you reach the guards and the base entrance). Last time I went in there, saw a doctor within 10 minutes, was out the door with blood pressure meds within 30 minutes and the total cost was 400 baht. Highly recommend both.

    PS: All the doctors I spoke with and many of the nurses speak passable English. You do need a translator to deal with clerks etc.

    Samitajev was the one recommeded to me
    I guess if it was not a life or death issue I'd go to Queen Sirikit from what I saw last year.
    The best room in an average hotel is far better and cheaper than the average room in the best hotel.

    Does anyone know how much taxi fare would be from Jomtien to Sattahip?
