Our goal is to give you access to powerful and credible information that is not available anywhere else. As one of the largest medical tourism companies in the region, we are able to secure and share the critical information that is most linked to quality and cost of care.
The concern of medical tourists is that a private physician or clinic may charge them more than a local patient. At DocDoc, we believe that it's unfair for a doctor in private practice to discriminate against someone because they are flying overseas for care.
DocDoc has Asia's largest healthcare physician network with 23,000 doctors, 420 clinics and 55 hospitals from various specialties throughout the region. We’re adding more physicians, clinics and hospitals daily.
DocDoc is run by a group of professionals who have been medical tourists. We understand the wants, needs and fears of our patients and are committed to supporting you. We believe that healthcare can and should be safe, transparent, and fair.
