Medical care in Siem Reap

Good healthcare can be hard to come by in Siem Reap. Many doctors don’t speak English and you can’t always be sure if they’ve had proper medical education or whether clinics have safe hygienic practices. That’s why it’s important to have a list of recommended clinics. The following includes Siem Reap’s medical clinics and doctors that are favored by local expats.

Royal Angkor International Hospital Siem Reap

Arguably the best care you’ll get in Siem Reap, but you’ll pay for it.

Hospitals, Clinics, and Doctors in Siem Reap

The Royal Angkor International Hospital offers the highest quality care in town, although the prices are on par with what you’d find back home (depending on where home is, of course. Bottom line: it’s expensive). Doctors here generally speak excellent English and have access to a wide variety of equipment. This is the most popular hospital in town with tourists, but if you live in Cambodia and can prove it with either a work permit or a long-stay visa, they do offer discounts. A standard appointment costs $35 for expats.

Neak Tep is the go-to clinic in town for the medical check needed for work permits, as well as a preferred expat clinic for most small issues. They have moved into a new, larger clinic and  although the prices have gone up due to its popularity with foreigners, Neak Tep is still way more affordable than the Royal Angkor International Hospital and provides a wide range of services, from X-rays and blood tests to surgery and vaccinations. Doctors speak very good English and are extremely kind. A regular appointment costs between $20 and $30, and they also do work permit medical checks for $25.

Ear, Noses, and Throat

Dr. Lim Vuthea is the best ENT doctor around besides those at the big hospitals in Siem Reap. He has the capability to do various tests and scopes, plus an x-ray machine and access to a lab for testing. His English is fairly good and prices are extremely low, although he tends to try to suggest more tests and procedures for foreigners than are strictly necessary, so you need to be able to advocate for yourself.

U-Care Pharmacy is a Western-style pharmacy with European beauty products. There are three branches in Siem Reap proper, one in Lucky Mall, another on Sivatha Boulevard and one near Old Market, plus another at the airport. The prices can be higher than many of the local pharmacies but the employees are well-trained and the store carries many products not available elsewhere. Know that they will almost always suggest expensive brand-name medications, but they do often care less-expensive generics if you ask.

    They are relatively new maybe 1 year.
    Modern 24/7 facility which is well staffed and equipped.I have not needed their services but they claim to have a “one price for all” system with a doctors visit $5. They also have ambulance service and appear to be very busy with a mix of locals, tourists and expats.Many of the upscale hotels use them for guest mishaps.

    Last year I twisted and broke an ankle getting off the plane in Siem Reap. I went to another clinic (not one listed here). The dr I saw spoke English, took xrays and then arranged to have an orthopedist come in to make a cast. He explained that they had nothing other than casts in Cambodia. Crutches proved too much for me, and I decided to return to the US. Luckily, a cousin told me that I would not be allowed on a plane with a cast, so I had to return to the clinic and have it cut open so I could fly (reason: danger of coronary thrombosis). The dr I saw was very apologetic, saying “I never had a patient who flew before.”
