Bumrungrad on 60 Minutes

I have talked about Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok many times on this forum. I had mentioned that it was featured a while back on 60 Minutes. This segment can be viewed on YouTube:

i understand they had a woman in there last week who they could quite not figure out.....she was quite tall and none of the beds fit her....she talked with an american twang, so they thought she must be from a central american state...

ha ha Bob... Actually, there were LOTS of Americans running around there, getting their physicals and doing dental work! Many nationalities were there. It's quite an impressive operation. Each part of the check-up is done by someone who does "only" that particular thing... ie pap smear doc (a lady) does only pap; the person drawing blood was really good at it; x-rays went smoothly, as did ultra sound and so on and so on. The guy with the easiest job is the doc who does the listening to your heart, lungs, looking in ears, checking throat, etc. and then he gets to sit with you are go over your "final report" before you get a copy of it a couple of days later.

The "Comprehensive Physical," which is a step up from the "Executive Physical" which my guys have had, is roughly $500 (17000+ bt) and takes about 5 hours to complete. You get a full written report to take home with you, which you pick up from the hospital a couple of days later. The Exec Phys is about $350 and takes slightly less time to complete.
