If you’re looking for a doctor in Medellin, you can visit the Emergency Dept. of any of the hospitals (“clinicas”) listed below. These clinicas all operate 24 hours, although services may be limited during the night.
Without local medical insurance, you will be referred to as a “particular” and required to pay for treatment. This may also mean that you get to jump the queue. To be seen by a doctor, you will first be asked to register. Remember to take your passport, and your credit card or enough money, for treatment. You may be asked to pay a deposit in advance. After treatment, you will be given the final bill, where you will need to pay the balance or receive a refund if the treatment was less than expected.
You can expect to pay around 100,000 COP for an average check-up and any special treatment required may be additional.
If you need specialist doctor or physiotherapist etc you should start at the Emergency Dept for an initial check up and they will give you a recommendation to specialist services within their hospital.
The majority of doctors in Colombia speak some English, but, it’s better to check before you pay if you’re worried about potential miscommunication.
