Will I understand the Surgeons and Doctor’s?
There is a language barrier between Thai people and most Australians. Most Thai doctors speak English, however, it is a broken English. But that is why we send you with an Australian hostess that has had numerous trips to Thailand – she will be there for your consult with Doctors and when you have your surgery.
