Contact the VA Clinic in Manila: The VA Clinics new toll free number in Manila:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has a new toll free telephone service. For outside Metro Manila, you may call VA at 1-800 - 1-888 - 5252. You can still continue to use their direct line 02-833-4566 within Metro Manila. This saves me a lot, because I have to call often to get my prescriptions renewed. The VA Clinic has asked I let all the visitors to the Living in the Philippines Web site and to the Living retiring traveling and doing business in the Philippines List about this new number. Remember this toll free number is only good for calling from in the Philippines, outside of Manila Again, the VA Clinic number is 1-800 - 1-888 5252.

Hospitals, Quality Of Medical Services

There are excellent hospitals in the major cities. One of the members of the List, "Living in the Philippines," is a M.D. in the States. He does volunteer work in the remote areas of the countryside here, where many people cannot afford doctors or medical treatment. He says that St. Luke's Hospital in Manila has done a wonderful job of recruiting U.S. trained Filipino doctors to work in that fine hospital. Since most Filipino doctors are trained with U.S. textbooks to pass the U.S. medical boards, their skills are world class. Dr. John says "You can get your open heart surgery here in the Philippines by a Filipino Doctor, or can fly to San Diego and get it done by a Filipino doctor there. The only difference is in the price."

Some drugs are not available here or are even more expensive than in the States. And there is a risk of getting counterfeit drugs here.

But with the Internet you can order from Canada, get good prices, even better than the States.
