An annual visit to a medical facility for a check-up is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. A check-up at Samitivej Hospital Bangkok provides an overall assessment of a patient’s well-being, and allows our physicians to suggest any lifestyle changes that might be necessary. Such screenings also help patients take preventive measures against potential diseases. The sooner one of our physicians identifies a problem, the more effectively we can treat it. At Bangkok’s Samitivej Hospital we recommend that all of our patients undergo routine check-ups.

What kinds of health check-ups are available?

We offer a wide range of specific tests and check-ups at Samitivej Hospital.
