One major advantage of living in Korea is access to low-cost, quality health care. I enjoy the additional benefit of working for a university with a hospital located right on campus.
Today I went in for a consultation with a dermatologist as I'm looking into some elective work. Nothing crazy, just a few minor tweaks. Anyway, must say, it was an altogether lovely experience -high praise from me, especially considering how nauseous I tend to get while in hospitals.
A few highlights:
- My appointment began on time.
- My doctor spoke terrific English and even made a few jokes.
- Total cost of consultation visit: $0 -thanks to my health insurance and faculty discount.
Next week I return for the actual procedures. Stay tuned for an update.
