I recently visited Malaysia with my wife. We needed to obtain medical assistance for my wife who had an acute sinus infection. When we entered the hospital, we were escorted to the International Patient Office, where the intake receptionist asked what the problem was. Identifying that it had to do with sinuses, she immediately sent us to an Ears/Nose/Throat specialist in the same building who saw us within a half hour. This United Kingdom trained and licensed specialist listened to my wife’s description of the problem, completed an examination, diagnosed the problem and wrote prescriptions that we then picked up at the in-hospital pharmacy. Within 1½ hours of entering the hospital, we had the medications and were back on our way to the hotel. Additionally the cost was a tenth of a usual visit to our local emergency room, prescriptions not included.
