outlet, a relative of the deceased who was named identified as

Thailand Medical News warns locals, expats and medical tourist to be wary of doctors, clinics, hospitals, drug and herbal brands, medical devices and health insurance companies that advertise in mainstream media, online sites, magazines and social media platforms or pay for sponsored posts.
Most well-known and excellent doctors, clinics and hospital do not advertise as they typically have long queues due to their well known re
putation and credibility.
Typically, doctors that are greedy and are not well known in their fields of specialty and also clinics that are basically devoid of patients advertise or pay fo sponsored post or use medical tourism sites or agents to promote their services. Clients of such doctors, clinics and hospitals typically end up paying more and also end up with substandard services and in some cases botched up procedures or worse death.
It should also be noted that it is hard to seek legal address in cases of botched procedures in Thailand.
Also do your own due diligence and stay away from any health or medical ads.
