If you were to make a list of all the fucked up, retarded, inept, stupid shit you shouldn't do on the roads, that would actually turn out to be the Cambodian handbook on how to drive.
Perusing hospital services from the links above and was intrigued by Sen Sok. During a tour of the web site, thought I'd check out the Gallery. Have a look at the ambulance pictures, the interiors showing a little recent usage. Look on the sliding cupboard doors. Accident lately? Gives one pause about the enire operation, so to speak.

I've been unlucky enough to stay in 2 different hospitals in Cambodia in the 2 and a half years I've been here.
The first one was at Calmette with typhoid. I would never stay again. It was terrible.
The second was Royal Rattanak Hospital in Toul Kork. I had appendicitis. It was very good, but a lot more expensive! I paid nearly $1000 for a 4 day stay and was impressed.

If you have proper insurance, do not go to Rattanak. They will tell your insurance company that there is no need to be evacuated, as they have the necessary facilities (which they do not have in case surgery is required).
Excellent list this.
Aurore for x rays,blood tests, all the simple stuff.
Gavin scott for skin problems,STD and HIV advice-typically good GP.
Rattanak for scans and x rays for serious problems.
Dutch physios in st 456 are excellent.Edwina is the best physio I have ever been to.
I am an older ex-veteran who is suffering from a potentially fatal kidney disease. I am low on funds and have a monthly income of $700 on which I support my wife and two kids. Can anyone offer me any information on the following..
Veterans Administration representative for overseas vets. Or else anyone who is associated with the VFW who might be able to help me. I have been to the American Embassy and they are useless. They told me to google it and apply on-line. I have already done that but the bureaucratic procedure is so slow that I could easily die before I either get turned down or approval. The VA in the Phillipines only handles Philipino vets.
I haven't the necessary funds to go to Thailand or Singapore, nor do I want to consult a Cambodian doctor without recommendations from ex-pats who have needed surgery. I went o a Cambodian hospital for an ultrasound scan which I got, but they were entirely incapable of interpreting the results. Please note that this a pleas for information, NOT money.
Sok Sen International Hospital has a Russian, who seems to have a good reputation. I believe it costs $30 for the first consultation and $15 for a follow up. Prices were on their website last time I looked.[/quote]
I saw him a few weeks ago when I needed some minor surgery.
He wanted to operate on me using a scalpel and no anesthesia.
I decided to wait until I was in BKK, and had the surgery done by a Thai doctor that
used a laser and local anesthesia.
The Russian doctor seems like a nice guy, but his methods seem very antiquated.
New service in Sihanoukville! If you want to avoid local medical facilities in case of sickeness or injury and rather be treated and adviced by western-trained emergency nurse, call me anytime on +855 977 570 423 and I will get to you asap!
I can recomend him have had a minor surgery there (Cyst removed from neck)
Great list thanks everyone, I don't want to fill it with questions so maybe a mod can delete this if/when it get's answered, and post the answer only.
Say you get run over, and need to call an ambulance. It seems like Rattanak would be best for immediate emergency services - but then if you need surgery according to the above post, they won't do much to get you out of the country. So in that case SOS would be better.
What's a person to do? Go to Rattanak then check your ass out for SOS once stabilized (of course in reality, you'd probably need a friend to help you out here)?
