What are the medical facilities like in Panama?

Panama

Panama has great medical facilities and doctors, particularly in Panama City and other large cities. Many doctors speak English and provide high-quality care for their patients. Outside of larger cities there are regional hospitals and clinics. Doctors are on-site and at most places an appointment is not necessary. There are also pharmacies scattered across Panama where travelers can purchase both prescription and non-prescription drugs. The cost of medical care or medicine is usually pretty cheap. Travelers who are considering visiting more adventurous, remote places may want to consider buying travel insurance.
