    Can anyone recommend an english speaking doctor/dentist here in Salvador? The last one I went to charged me 250 reaes which is about 100 euros making him one of the most expensive doctors I have been to in a long long while!

    Mine is 200 (or 220 maybe) but this is good for more than one visit. He orders lab tests then you go back and he gives you a prescription then you go back and say ‘I’m cured’ but all within some time period. My doc is worth it, but he doesn’t speak english and he’s not in salvador.

    Do you think Brazilians get charged the same fee? It just seems really high. It’s more than a regular GP visit in nyc!!!

    Why don’t you have a health plan (if you are resident) or travel insurance (if you are a visitor)? If you are a visitor you can get free emergency care at any public hospital.

    as soon as i told the dr. that my insurance covers 100 percent, i literally saw the lightbulb light up over his head. i think i would rather have a dr. who wasn’t into price gouging.

    Do you want a doctor or a dentist? I have a wonderful dentist in Itaigara who speaks some English and is very trust worthy.
