GUIDE TO MEDICAL TREATMENT IN KUALA LUMPUR

1. Check the schedule and make an appointment to see a doctor

 

Make sure you check the schedule and make an appointment to see a doctor before you leave for Kuala Lumpur.

The intended doctor may be on leave, may have a surgery schedule, or fully booked so if you don't make an appointment before leaving, you might be asked to come another day.

 

Here's how to check a doctor's schedule and make an appointment to see a doctor:

 

  1. Provide us with the estimated date you want to seek treatment.

  2. We will confirm the availability of the doctor.

  3. If the doctor is available, make an appointment immediately by sending us a photo of your passport. If the doctor is not available, we will give information on when the doctor is available soonest.

  4. After the appointment is confirmed, we will send you proof of confirmation.

 

2. Booking Airport Pickups

 

Some hospitals in Kuala Lumpur provide transportation services from the airport to the hospital / hotel. These are the conditions:
 

  • Beacon Hospital - Airport pick-up is available to your hotel of choice as well as transportation to the hospital on your treatment days. A standard rate applicable for this service  which will be visible on your bill. Pick-up service is available throughout the day, every day.

 

  • Gleneagles KL - Free shuttle service. Pick-ups are only available on weekdays, Monday - Friday (7:00am - 4:30pm) and Saturday (7:00am - 4:30pm).

 

You must book at least 3 days before departure. Please let us know so that we can arrange the airport pick-up for you.

 

Note:
 

  • If the hospital does not provide pickup service from the airport, you can take Grab car instead, it costs around RM 70 - 120, depending on traffic conditions.
