I am here in the country for several months temporarily and need to find a Gastroenterologist who does colonoscopies. Can anyone recommend someone who's been in the business for some time or does anyone know anyone who is an American Gastroenterologist practicing here? THANKS!

Warning on Hospiten

I just wanted to report to the board that they should be very careful when using some - perhaps all of the private hospitals here - if they do not have local insurance coverage or a comprehensive international policy. I was referred to the emergency room Hospiten - a slick modern hospital-with a branch in Punta Cana- for a blood test for maleria when I returned ill from the Haitian border with flu symptoms and diarrhea.

I asked for just that test - a blood test on maleria, but gave the desk my VISA card. When I was discharged, they gave me a bill for over $300 for a complete blood work up. Now, it was ok since I had not had a complete work up in a couple of years but it was not what I asked for.

After that experience, I stick with Clinic Abreu, which is the hospital that the US government uses for all its peace corps volunteers. It is not a shiny new facility but I have had friends who have had advanced surgery there - hysterectomy - broken pelvis - with complete sucess.

So, as in everything here - caveat emptor.
