A couple days ago, I ate something which disagreed with me high order. Had the predictably unpleasant night. Then, yesterday it was a real challenge to drink water and I was concerned about dehydration. I've had experience in this regard and decided it was time to go see a doctor before it reached the point of renal failure.

I had the bright idea of going to the Bangkok Hospital South Pattaya branch which is on the east side Sukhumvit more or less opposite the Big C.

They're not at all busy. I got to see a (the?) doctor, very young, within 15 minutes. While I am sure she was competent, her English was a real challenge. She was saying dehydrated. I thought she was saying headache.

At my suggestion, they started a bag of IV saline/dextrose. It was a 500ml bag. After 2 hours, it still had over 400ml to go. I don't know if that is the standard flow rate in Thailand, but I knew I would go stir crazy if I stayed there much longer. Went out to the nurse and said "finish now". I know you say wait, my decision.

As is standard, for Bangkok Hospital, they loaded me up with a variety of meds, most of which are probably pointless other than an electrolyte powder. There doesn't seem to be any concern about the overprescription of antibiotics.

Not certain, but I doubt they had the lab to do a blood test for kidney function.

If I feel the need, I will be going to the big hospital up the road.

Oh yes, I'm feeling human today.

I didn't even know there was a Bangkok Hospital, South Pattaya Branch!

I had a bout of food poisoning a month ago... easy this time of year with the heat.

I sent my Mrs to go get some 'powders', I was thinking more along the lines of 'Eno's' antacid.

She came back with some electrolyte powders which I gave her back... thinking dopey pharmacists! It was only later that I looked them up and realised they were likely a better option than Eno's. Bet mine were cheaper!

Glad you recovered.

Bangkok Hospital Pattaya Clinic

 

Sept. 2013 (Pattaya Mail)

 

Bangkok Hospital Pattaya opened its first neighborhood clinic in Central Pattaya, offering Soi Boonsampan-area residents checkups and basic medical services.  Hospital Director Dr. Pichit Kangwolkij and Nongprue Mayor Mai Chaiyanit joined sub-district government and police officials at the Sept. 9 ribbon cutting. Monks from local temples provided the blessing.

 

Pichit said the clinic offers free services, including free checks for diabetes, blood pressure, eyesight and pregnancy, as well as paid medical services that people otherwise would have to visit the Sukhumvit Road hospital for.

 

Bangkok Hospital Pattaya’s first neighborhood clinic is now open in Central Pattaya, offering checkups and basic medical services.

 

The clinic is the first full-fledged medical center Bangkok Hospital Pattaya has opened in Pattaya, although the hospital has several “contact centers” inside area hotels catering to tourists.

 

The clinic is open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, call 038-110-654.

Well see there, I thought you was going to walk over and check up on the blood tests service offered and their costs. Lose a portion of a kilo just checking up on the prices and posting for all us other lazy parentless folk.

OK OK OK..

 

I went there this morning to see what checkups they do.

 

1. They showed me the leaflet for the "July Summer Package" but said the prices were wrong and called the main hospital.They told me over the phone that the July package was over and there will be a new offer in August....but no prices yet.....

 

2. I asked her to go through the basic list and tick what tests they do.......by sending your blood to the main hospital of course......the more expensive packages obviously have more tests..

 

  1. Physical Examination
  2. Vision Acuity, Uncorrected and Corrected
  3. Complete Blood Count (CBC)
  4. Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS)
  5. HbA1C (Hemoglobin A1C)
  6. Cholesterol
  7. Triglyceride
  8. HDL - Cholesterol
  9. LDL - Cholesterol
  10. BUN - Blood Urea Nitrogen
  11. Creatinine
  12. SGOT (Serum glutamic - oxaloacetic transaminase)
  13. SGPT (Serum glutamic - pyruvic transaminase)
  14. Alkaline Phosphatase
  15. Total protein
  16. Bilirubin
  17. GGT - Gamma GT
  18. Blood Uric Acid
  19. Urine Examination
  20. Stool Examination
  21. Chest X-Ray
  22. ECG - Electrocardiogram
  23. Ultrasound Whole Abdomen

3. I asked her if you can go in and get a PSA. After consulting the main hospital she said yes for 1,142.

 

4. They can also do Colon and Liver cancer screening too....but I've just noticed it so don't know the price..

 

5. Basically this place is situated on South Pattaya , Sukumvit, opposite the new KFC drive thru/Big C and is useful for those with time on their hands to wait for results and for those that live in the area with no transport.....
