wanted to share this in case anyone has an emergency in HCMC.
My 19 year old daughter is on vacation from Canada and became quite ill yesterday with a severe infection that required urgent diagnosis and treatment.....she was running a high fever of 39.5c with diarrhoea, nausea and all sorts of body pains plus her tonsils were inflamed and white.
Went to "Columbia Asia Gia Dinh International Hospital". There are 2 of them in HCMC, the second one named "Columbia Asia Saigon International Clinic". The hospital receptionist spoke fluent English, the triage nurse spoke good English and the female Doctor spoke very good English. The hospital is spotless clean with all mod cons and we were finished in 1 hour. The total cost was about USD 75 including triage, doctor examination, blood tests and medications which is incredible. As a parent I felt very comfortable here and would highly recommend it. She is sleeping it off now and feeling much better.
