English Speaking Doctor Gwanganli (simple clinic)
Printer-friendly version

Anyone know a good English speaking doctor around Gwanganli?

Most Koreans have recommended I go to the hospital, but all I have is a simple flu. I just want a simple prescription to get rid of this nasty illness and going to the hospital seems a bit extreme.
Also my local hospital (Good An Hospital) charges 50,000w for a consultation, which seems a bit much. I don't have health insurance.

I get the impression that here everyone just goes to the hospital no matter how simple or severe their ailment is? Are there no simple clinics here that just treat the small stuff?

Thanks.

As my experience Any Korean doctors can communicate in English; they learned medical terms in English at school, even if they don't speak English very well like English teachers. You can try any small clinics.  There is a public health center(보건소)- very cheap. It's on the right side of Pastela Studio officetel. If you have your insurance card, you can get a prescription from there. I think you'd better to bring someone who speaks Korean. That's a lot easier. The doc has a Tic disorder, when you speak English he might be nervous and look strange. 

The doc of 혜민의원 in Mangmi speaks English fluently and is friendly. It's on the second floor of Busan bank, Mangmi branch. I recommend it.  http://neo.goodoc.co.kr/hospitals/56141

Just go to an ear, nose and throat doctor. There are many in every neighborhood that can prescribe medicine for flu. You will probably see them as E N T.
