Should I be with a companion when I travel to the Philippines for medical reasons?

It’s advisable to take a companion with you, especially if you’re planning to undergo surgery or any extensive medical procedures. Aside from giving you support and company, he or she can handle the paperwork and act as a liaison between you and the hospital. Your experience will be more convenient if you have a companion with you in your trip.

Is language going to be an issue when I travel to the Philippines?

Not at all. The Philippines is the world’s third largest English-speaking country, so communicating with people—from taxi drivers and waiters to doctors and nurses—shouldn’t be a problem. If you don’t speak English, many hospitals and healthcare facilities cater to patients of different languages and cultural backgrounds.
