How about international cuisine availability for Ayurveda treatments?

For alternative medicine like Ayurveda, patients are required to adhere to the dietary guidance of doctors. This is to ensure that the treatment will have the best possible impact and ensure a speedy recovery. At such treatment centres, international cuisine is usually not provided.

Are international cuisines available in hospitals?

Yes. All major hospitals provide international cuisine for their patients and their families. While some menus are standard for patients with certain medical conditions, variations and choices are always available upon request.
Please check the hospital description provided in the Sehat Oman portal and on the hospital website to see your options. Doctors might also advise on the kind of diet based on your therapeutic needs. In case you have any special dietary requirements, intimate the hospital prior to your travel and they hospital will cater to it.
For patients’ families and visitors, there are special catering units as well.

Will there be an interpreter to assist me during my stay?

English is widely spoken across Malaysia. However, if a patient requires assistance with another language, then an interpreter can be arranged on request. Some of the leading hospitals also employ full-time in-house interpreters for international patients. We would advise you to inform the hospital in advance in case an interpreter is required.

How will my appointments with the doctor be scheduled?

Mostly hospitals in Malaysia have a standard protocol for medical tourists and a separate cell that will facilitate the scheduling of appointments and consultations with the doctor. We therefore advise you to talk to the hospital before making any travel plans.
