Medical facilities in Malaysia
Healthcare in Malaysia is divided into public and private. Both sectors provide high-quality medical services, with modern technology and highly skilled staff, many of whom have trained overseas. As a medical tourism destination, areas such as cardiology, ophthalmology, dentistry, orthopaedics, gastroenterology, plastic and general surgery, and screening are at the forefront of their respective fields.
Doctors’ consultations are relatively inexpensive and the standards are high; almost all doctors are able to speak English. Dentists and other specialists are equally easy to visit and consultation fees are reasonable.
Although expats have access to Malaysian public hospitals, many still choose to use private facilities.
