Medical Tourism by Passport Medical
With healthcare costs spiraling out of control in North America, people like you are waking up to the fact that low cost, high quality alternatives for medical and dental care treatments do exist outside North America. But booking your own overseas experience can be a difficult task. How do you know which international medical providers and dental clinics are reputable? How do you know which locations are the best destinations? As an award winning medical travel company, Passport Medical solves these problems with the leading reputation in the industry. Language barriers, repeated unanswered emails (often due to language barrier), and a general lack of available information on foreign websites all can lead your information search to a grinding halt. With over 2000 patients served since 2009, Passport Medical has created an extensive network of world-class medical providers and dental treatment clinics, and this information is at your disposal.
A good safe medical tourism facilitator like Passport Medical should be able to solve these problems, and there should be no additional cost to doing it yourself, and certainly be less stressful. In fact it will often be less expensive than booking the procedure yourself due to our close relationships with providers.
A good medical tourism company like Passport Medical will have very strong relationships and communication with the doctors and hospitals in its network and, most importantly, know who to contact to get the timely information and pricing that you want, or have it already. Whether you're looking for a Knee Replacement, Hip Replacement or common dental work like a dental implant, Passport Medical can assist you. With many of our procedures you will save up to 80% off the price you would be paying in your home country.
We have recently launched two procedure specific websites to help educate our patients with the most up to date information there is. For joint replacement we have launched Hip and Knee Replacement Center and for dental procedures we have Dental Vacation Center both are owned and operated by us here at Passport Medical.
