ThaiMed Experience

Mike Brennan - ThaiMed Owner


Siriyada - ThaiMed Coordinator


My name is Mike Brennan and in the year 2000 I was a self-employed American living in Japan with no health insurance. Medical care is not good in Japan and I knew it would be absolutely unaffordable to address my unmet medical needs back in the United States.

I learned that Thailand offered excellent medical care at prices I could easily afford, and as a bonus, they offered cosmetic surgery at a bargain. Luckily, it was easy to find the names and addresses of many hospitals and clinics on the internet. I remember thinking, "I can do this!"

In May of 2000 I did what you are trying to do now. I attempted to plan a medical tour to Bangkok using the Internet. There were not as many web sites to choose from then, but all the big hospitals were represented.

Biggest difference - there was NO ThaiMed!

I thought I had it all figured out. However, upon arrival in Bangkok I found that things were not as advertised, at least not as I imagined based on their representations online. In addition, there was nobody I could trust, or even understand easily, available to help me. Some doctors and hospitals were just unacceptable while others provided care to a different standard than I was accustomed. Language was a problem and Thai doctors are uncomfortable with hard questions from prospective patients.

So to proceed, I had to start slowly and go step by step. I began cautiously, with a complete check-up in including dental, medical, blood work, and X-rays. You name it, I did it. I knew my health status exactly, what I had to do and how much it would cost by the end of my second trip. I decided on a hair transplant as my first procedure, and then did upper & lower eyelids, filler instead of a facelift, a small liposuction and lots of dermatology. View my Before & After Photos and see for yourself.

To complete my treatments required multiple trips over the next two years. As I learned my way around the hospitals here I had all my unmet medical needs addressed by doctors with whom I felt comfortable, at prices I could afford easily. I had a lot of dental treatments, gall bladder surgery and knee surgery. Early in this process I realized this was an exciting business opportunity for me as most medical tourists would not have the time nor could they afford unproductive trips.

Therefore, ThaiMed offers service based on what I would have liked when I first arrived. We are not for everybody as some travelers still think, "I can do this myself" and maybe you can, but why risk it? You won't get a better result and you probably won't save any money either! This will be your first shot and what if you make a mistake.

If you choose ThaiMed I think you will be glad you did!

Before and After Photos From Thailand

Why ThaiMed

We use only the best doctors and finest hospitals in Thailand, which is known worldwide for its great medical care and unparallel hospitality.

We have a Personal Assistant to take care of your needs and attend to your request after you have checked out of the hospital and begin recovering.

We are in Thailand with a staff that lives here full time and receives all their own medical care at the same hospitals and from the same doctors where we take you.

Why Thailand

There are four main reasons people travel abroad for their personal health care:

Save Money with Medical Care in Thailand

Thailand is a source of affordable medical and delivered to a high standard. Unfortunately, some medical travelers end up using the cheapest price as the deciding factor when choosing their hospital and surgeon and ultimately end up paying a heavy price in anxiety and disappointment they may have to live with forever! If you choose ThaiMed we can deliver a satisfactory result safely and affordably!

No Waiting for Medical Care

If you are covered by government insurance or for any reason on a waiting list, WAIT NO LONGER. Here if you are a candidate for the surgery you seek and there are no medical reasons not to proceed we can offer the surgery quickly based on completion of your medical history, appropriate tests and your willingness to pay.

High Standard Medical Care

Thailand has medical care that is as good as offered anywhere in the world using hospitals that are as nice or perhaps even nicer than you have at home. Most doctors have been trained not only in Thailand but also in the US or Europe.

Medical standards, hospital rooms, operating rooms etc in the top tier hospitals are equal to the best in the world. Nursing care is better from a patient's perspective than any I have seen including the US. It is relatively safe. One can walk alone most anywhere day or night in Bangkok with no problem.

Thailand is an interesting travel destination and still a travel bargain. Before or following your procedures you can enjoy a wonderful vacation in the city, on an island, at the beach or in the mountains as Thailand offers all. However if you have only 7-10 days it is best you recover in Bangkok. It is an exotic city offering great dermatology or dental and unusual medical spas with alternative medicine. There is plenty to see and your doctors are close at hand.

Professional and Attentive Care

We use only board certified doctors and accredited hospitals in Bangkok Thailand, which is known worldwide for its great medical care and unparalleled hospitality.

We offer a Personal Assistant to take care of your needs and attend to your requests after you have checked out of the hospital and begin recovering if you request that.

We are the only company doing this in Thailand with a staff that lives here full time and receives all their own medical care at the same hospitals and from the same doctors where we take you.

So people are traveling to places like Thailand to meet their medical needs that for whatever reason are unmet in their home country. Unfortunately, some medical travelers end up using the cheapest price as the deciding factor when choosing their hospital and surgeon and ultimately end up paying a heavy price in anxiety and disappointment they may have to live with forever!
