In people's daily life, there will always be some emergencies. Therefore, if you are a foreigner living in China and want to see a doctor in China when you are sick, for your convenience, please keep the following tips in mind.
Choose the right hospital
There are many hospitals in China with different levels of medical care. Therefore, you need to check in advance which hospital has the best treatment effect for your illness. There are also many online consultation platforms. If you don’t know which department you should see, you can consult an online doctor first, and he will give you a preliminary diagnosis and treatment suggestions. You will then consider the distance, medical level, and hospital-level factors to choose the most cost-effective hospital. For this, you can also ask your Chinese friends for advice. After all, they have lived here for many years and they can definitely give you some advice.
Being familiar with the structure of the hospital
Since all hospitals have their own architectural style, once you enter an unfamiliar environment, you will feel lost in a maze. Even if you are under the guidance of others, but due to language barriers, you may not be able to pay the fees or the specific location of the corresponding department. Therefore, after entering the hospital, first of all, you need to observe the overall structure of the hospital and the signs. If you have any questions, please consult the information desk at any time, which will save you a lot of trouble.
China has a large population and many people line up for medical treatment every day. Now hospitals have online appointment platforms. After you choose a hospital, you can make an online appointment for registration. When the appointment time comes, you can go directly to the hospital to pick up the number for treatment, which can avoid the problem that you can't register when you go to the hospital. But even during the time you make an appointment, you will still be in a long queue when you arrive at the hospital. Therefore, you still need to wait patiently in line. At the same time, you should be prepared to learn some common Chinese for seeing a doctor, in case ordinary doctors or medical staff do not speak foreign languages and cannot understand you well. A good suggestion is, if you are not good at Chinese, then bring a Chinese friend.
If you feel unwell, don't worry, don't panic, and see a doctor immediately. The doctor will solve your intractable diseases and give you some suggestions. If you drag on a minor illness, it may only get worse, and it will not be easy to treat.
