Chiang Mai Doctors And Medical Specialists

Recommended Posts

chiang mai    12,592

Following on from an earlier thread: a couple of members in the Chiang Mai forum thought it would be helpful to all if there was a pinned list of recommended medical doctors and specialists in the Chiang Mai area (only) - this post is the start of such a list.

We will try and clean up and consolidate the list at various times and then ask that it be pinned in this forum for reference - the criteria for inclusion on the list is that a number of TV members must have recommended the doctor/specialist who should speak a good level of English. Please post details of the doctors name, medical specialty, where the doctor works and any other contact details you may have.

It will help the nature of this list greatly if we can all remain focused and avoid the usual debate/discussion/war stories of personal experience that typically take place. Thanks!

GP – Dr Morgan, Hang Dong, Chiang Mai

Cardiologist – Dr Patarapong, RAM Hospital, Chiang Mai

Pulmonary – Dr Limsukon, Sripat Hospital, Chiang Mai

Endocrinologist – Dr Umpiga, Sripat Hospital, Chiang Mai

Gastrointestinal & Liver - Dr Jaruwat Yossombat, RAM Hospital, Chiang Mai

Orthopaedic -Dr Suthee (Sripat) & Dr Paiboon (RAM)

Head & Neck Surgeon – Dr Mark Thong, NUH Singapore

(Note: I've included this name here because it's a very difficult specialty to find in Thailand)

Dentist (all aspects) - Dr Varaporn (RAM)

I've seen all of the above and can confirm their English is at least very good and based on my take, plus the views of the professionals who recommended them to me in the first place, they are all of a very high professional standard.

I saw Dr Morgan and she was very good, also was very prepared to liase with my doctors and specialist here in Perth for ongoing treatment.

Went to one of the hospitals and they did not want to know about previous condition and would not speak to my doctor here.

I was recomended by another board member here to Dr Morgan and was so happy

Glad that you agree, I think it's fairly safe to assume, based on recent posts/threads that Dr Morgan is confirmed on the list without the need for further endorsement.

I agree 100% with this post by Elektrified regarding dematology, skin problems etc.

Dr. Siri removed a lump from my neck as an outpatient at Sripat. The biopsy result was OK and he called me personally, to tell me as soon as he received the result.

There is absolutely none better in Chiang Mai than Dr. Siri Chiewchanvit. He is a Professor at CMU and is considered one of the best Doctors in Thailand.

His clinic is at 199 Thannon Moon Muang - very close to Pratu Taphae and Sompet Market. He also has clinics at Sripat and Chiang Mai Ram. He speaks perfect fluent English.

An obvious gap that we haven't filled is ENT, there's loads of mediocre ones out there, anyone know a really good one?

Ditto OB/GYN

I would like to say that Dr. Tawachai at Loi Kroh clinic is an extremely knowledgeable GP.

I just don't like the clinic and the crowds with runny noses. He doesn't have much time between patients, but I did make a special appointment with him once after clinic and he's a wealth of knowledge.

I think if people are willing to share their 'genuine' experiences, this thread will be extremely useful.

Happy to include on the list but we need a doctors name since this is people not business specific.

How about the Dr that jko saw regarding Alzheimer's - sounds like he's on the ball?

https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/511039-recommendation-for-neurologist-in-chiang-mai/

"We therefore consulted Dr Surat Tanprawate at Sripath as suggested. This doctor has an excellent manner, and speaks very good English"

"Based on a memory test given to the patient by a nurse on the spot, Dr Surat did not agreewith the diagnosis of ''early Alzheimer's' given by the first doctor at Chiang Mai Ram Hospital".
