Greece is a newcomer to the medical tourism market! However, as the birthplace of modern medicine, Greece is proud to have some of the best professionals in the healthcare system.
Greek doctors practice with as much care and professionalism as other more well established destinations.
Also, many physicians have been trained at schools located in the U.S. and United Kingdom, and combined with modern hospitals/clinics and state of the art equipment, Greece is a force to be reckoned with in the medical tourism scene.
The healthcare system in Greece is ranked as one of the highest in the world. According to the world health organization, costs for health care in Greece remain among the lowest in the world.
Major hospitals clustered in Greece’s larger cities served the multidimensional needs of medical fields such as orthopedics, fertility, cardiac care, oral and dental procedures and more.
Prescription drug costs in Greece remain among the lowest in the world, the highly trained pharmacists and pharmacies dispense the latest in drugs and medications.
Currently, the capital city of Athens is the epicenter of the medical tourism industry in Greece in which patients generally seek cosmetic surgery and dental procedures, however the government is trying to develop the island of Crete, and the mainland cities of Chalkidiki, Thessaloniki, and Achaia, which are already popular tourist destinations.
The official language is Greek, however English is very well spoken and understood in major cities/islands and tourist areas.
The weather in Greece is warm and mild. Especially in Athens, from May to late October is mainly sunny and warm. But really the weather depends on the location. The islands of the Cyclades and Crete have a Mediterranean climate. During the summer temperature can reach more than 100oF (40oC). Winter in Greece – November to February – is never heavy, temperature ranges from 0oC to 15oC. Spring and fall time are the most climatically pleasant times to visit Greece.
