QUESTION ABOUT DOCTORS/HOSPITALS IN MOROCCO

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody--Poor Hamid has been living with a ruptured eardrum that is about to kill him. Now he has infection running into his mouth, headaches, rushing water sounds, etc. I don't know how he has stood the pain this long. He has taken antibiotics and I brought him a strong Z pack from the USA last month. However, it just gets worse. He never complains, so when he told me how bad it hurts, it is time to push him on. He is on his way to Casa now to visit and ear/nose/throat specialist listed on my world wide insurance net.

Anyway, a doctor in March told him he needs surgery, I am assuming to repair the eardrum which he said has obviously been a problem for a long time. However, his father is scared that Hamid won't wake up from the surgery. His dad is not educated and thinks he can just keep taking medicine. It could also be that he knows bad stuff about hospitals and doctors there. I know from reading that the medical care there sucks. Hope I never have a stroke or anything while I am there. Anyway....

So what I am wondering is: Does anybody know good ear/nose/throat specialist and/or hospital that would be able to help him????? :help:

I gave him the name of a specialist in Casa and 3 in Rabat that MY insurance accepts through WorldAccess/which is part of Blue Cross worldwide. I am assuming that since my good insurance accepts these doctors and hospitals, they are the best. Do you think that is a good assumption????

As ever, I appreciate any and all advice. I am wondering if anybody's SO might have had any experience of this nature. THANK YOU!!! Debbie (and Hamid)

HE HAS NO INSURANCE, OF COURSE, SO HE WILL HAVE TO PAY IN CASH FOR ALL OF THIS. I feel so badly for the Moroccan people for the lack of health, dental care, just basic human needs. :crying:

I would trust BCBS. They have never done wrong in my opnion as far as doctor's go. Always had great dr's. They also have to meet requirements to be on their plan.

Thanks, Patiently, I totally agree with you. The problem will be with the cousin who works at the hospital.......I'm sure his family will trust them more than a BCBS doc. I hate to get in the middle of their family, but we will see what happens when he gets back. I'll let you know. I'm sure he will go see this other doctor also in Marrakech.

You may want to look into doctors recommended by the US consulate in Morocco.

Debbie - my husband recently had to go see an ear/nose throat specialist as he has allergies. He and his family are VERY distrustful of doctors but the particular doctor that he went to he felt was pretty good. I think it was a woman doctor.

I will email him this evening and find out the doctor's name. I think she may be in Rabat. My husband lives in Sale. Seeing as how distrustful he is of doctors, the fact that this one got high points must mean she is REALLY good.

I will let you know. :)
