The x-ray technician was fast and efficient and the doctor on duty answered all of my questions and explained the pain I had been feeling.
Great, clean hospital in Seoul. I had hurt my knee a week earlier, but had been avoiding going to a hospital for fear it might be confusing and stressful for a foreigner. The pain in my knee persisted so I emailed the International Medical Coordinator, Erin Shin at Yonsei Sarang Hospital see if I could get a same day appointment and she responded within 5 minutes. We arranged for me to come in that afternoon. She told us exactly where to go in the hospital and met my friend and I there shortly after arriving. Erin was friendly, professional and stayed with me throughout the entire hospital visit. She translated everything with ease, made sure I got all the paperwork I needed for insurance purposes and made the entire visit quick and easy. If you are a foreigner in Korea and need to visit a hospital, I highly recommend contacting Erin Shin and Yonsei Sarang Hospital.
