Udon General Physicals

Post by parrot » November 19, 2022, 3:49 pm

I was in the foreigner section of Udon General inquiring about some surgical procedures for a friend.....the two people I spoke to were very helpful and spoke excellent enough English. I complimented them on the feedback that several UM people have made about various surgeries/care there......and took the opportunity to inquire about physicals at the hospital.
I was given a number of test forms for blood, urine, etc where one can basically choose their desired test. Be there at 8AM (maybe a few minutes early), no food after midnight. I did not ask about costs.
I'm curious whether any UM member has done a full up blood/urine/chest Xray test at the hospital and how they found the service.

I know there was a Lab near to the Police Station that did all the necessary tests on Blood/Urine , far more efficient and not so costly compared top most hospitals, although I have never used Udon General.
X=Rays are the only thing they do not do . The problem with using the General hospital is the SHEER NUMBR of other peop[le there, some patients most family clogging up many areas, wih the current situation regarding Viruses and other weather related illnesses flying about , a large place full of probably sick people is NOT somewhere I would go

Good to get a positive, glass half full, report from someone who has actually been there, and done it.

I conducted a similar exercise at a private clinic in Ban Dung a couple of days ago. Given that the clinic was over the road from the hospital, and the woman who took my blood walked over the same road to take the sample, I suspect the analysis was done on government hospital equipment.

I was OK to pay the tab (THB1700) to avoid the clusterfaarrk that occurs at the hospital each morning, and the report was comprehensive, with her coming back in the evening to go through the results with me.

The only shortcoming (in my view) was the PSA test, which the report described as a Test Strip, and only gave a pass or fail result. I was OK, but from what I have read, it is preferable to have a reading, so you can see where your PSA is heading.

What did UTG offer, watchman?

Very reasonable costs, may give it a try, however with regards to the PSA Test , after about 5 years I got tested first at AEK and then at Wattana, ASEK stated I needed followup procedures costing over 15k, whereas Wattana said I was OK.
In discussing the p[robelm with my family, checking your own emissions by looking at them will give a more certain indication rather than a TEST which may highlight MINOR problems which will give you ZERO problems for the rest of your life and having a Colonoscopy can be worse than NOT having one at all

The major problems with today's TESTS are that they have the ability to show up minute imperfections which will never cause you any harm but it does give Doctors a way to get you to seek another procedure to check` at a COST .

However whatever makes you feel happy is best for you

I was in there a few weeks ago. Had the full blood count. Chest and leg X-ray's.
Due to knee replacement needed. The service was great..
But it went down hill very fast due to chest X-ray's. See post "knee replacement "

I will say again a PSA test should be done every year by men (min) over 50 – no excuses or buts
Keep the results and if you can use a Spreadsheet create one so you can refer back to it.
As long as the reading stays (reasonably) flat then you’re fine but if it starts to increase get checked out fully

It's been several years since my last check up at Bangkok Hospital and I want to do the same again in December.

Looking at BKK Hospital website they have the following promotion;

Looking for advice on which package to go for. I.e Executive with 40 items for Baht 18,900 or the Ultimate with 47 items for baht29,900???
Also if you have experience of a better option elsewhere also like to hear about it.

thanks

The attached flyer arrived at the house some time while I was away. I haven't asked about it and I haven't checked so just posted for info. Impressive prices but do your own research and due diligence.

The address is written on the flyer.

Maybe ask one of your many thai high ranking friends to translate or call one of the three phone numbers also provided.

This clinic appears to be associated with The Church of Christ compound which is located north of Do Home on the Nong Khai Hwy. Here is a street view of the compound:

Colossians 2:8-10...See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, which are based on human tradition and the spiritual forces of the world rather than on Christ. For in HIM dwells all the fullness of the GODHEAD bodily; and you are complete in HIM, who is the head of all principality and power.

Why didn't you ask your carpenter/cabinet maker before asking here?

Do you not think I have done so , sadly directions here are at best vague I thought I was asking an intelligent question from intelligent people, it seems that was the mistake I made thinking posters on here regarding locations were inelligent . I will find out the answer and NOT POST IT ok !!
