    Default Clinica Abreu - Walk ins?

    I know Clinica Abreu has the Emergency Room section but do they also have an area where they accept walk-ins?

    If not can someone recommend a doctor (GP) who speaks at least a little English and accepts ARS Humano insurance? I have a slight problem with my elbow I need looked at.

    You're a foreigner with insurance. You can walk in anywhere that your insurance is honored and you'll be seen before the motoconcho driver who slid under a dump truck.

    The only higher priority than you would be a foreigner with a pocket full of cash.

    Most likely I will just go to Clinica Abreu or I might try General Hospital Plaza de Salud which is a little closer to me.

    I went to Clinica Abreu 11 years ago in order to have my medical exam and vaccinations up to date for US immigration process.

    If I go again will be as a US citizen, holding a Blue cross & blue shield card... LOL

    Clínica Abreu is a very good facility. I had my gallbladder removal surgery there last year and although I say it is a good facility, getting the surgery set up and payment was a headache. For BCBS, although it says Clínica Abreu is in network with Geoblue, they will not directly bill that, you have to pay out of pocket and send the bills in yourself for reimbursement. There are a couple doctors that do speak English there, cant remember their names exactly haha. As long you have cash in hand or Dominican insurance (which I recommend getting if youre resident or citizen) then you'll be fine to walk in and ask for pretty much anything you want done. I'm planning to get some type of private insurance within the next year since I'm dual citizen, but I don't know which would be beneficial to me, I hear universal or humano are basically the two widely accepted. Got to do more research.

    Getting your DR insurance sooner could be better than later. With new policies there is usually a 1 year wait period before the full coverage kicks in. You might want to get that setup in a year that you don't need to file any significant claims so it is good to go when you get run over by a golf cart.

    Also, if you have coverage from a foreign company, your policy with them undoubtedly stipulates that if you also have other health insurance, you must use that first before filing any claim with the foreign company. It's possible that you would have to survive without full coverage for up to a year from either company

    In Abreu you want to see Servio de Pena. When you walk in the front door his office is immediately on the right. Speaks some english.

    If you walk a little further in, Dr. Pablo Valdez is on the left (#4 I think). He is the U.S. Consulate doctor and has been my doctor for decades. Speaks decent English as well

    All of my doctors are in Abreu. (And I have a few) It's been my clinic of choice ever since I've been here.

    Cedimat is very good, but they run on an appointment system so no walk in's there.
