HEALTHCARE RESOURCES FOR CHIRIQUI PROVINCE
Version 1.2, August 30, 2017

The information contained in this listing of healthcare resources was originally compiled by Mary Lynah many years ago. Beginning August 2017, this resource listing is now maintained by Doug and Jo Johnson, who are full-time Boquete residents, having retired several years ago from legal and medical careers. If you find incorrect, outdated, or missing information, please notify Doug and Jo, and they will research, validate, and then post the correct information on this listing for everyone's benefit. Doug and Jo may be contacted by PM (private message) here on CL using the @Doug and Jo display name, or by regular email to health.info@chiriqui.life. It is strongly preferred that communications with Doug and Jo about this listing not be conducted by postings in this forum or in this particular topic.

Be advised that not all of the resources listed below are actually located within the Chiriqui Province. Sometimes there are health care situations that may require specialized care that is not available in Chiriqui. And so this listing focuses on the health care resources that someone residing in the Chiriqui Province may need, even though requiring travel outside of the province. In some cases, resources outside of Chiriqui may came to Chiriqui for specific cases. Your mileage may vary.

There are two emergency assistance services in Chiriqui Province:

  • Alto al Crimen Hotline at 6477-6662, for help in getting an ambulance or other emergency assistance in English.
  • Rodny Direct, which is a 24/7/365 emergency helpline service in English and Spanish, email info@rodnydirect.com.

There is a group for attending to emergencies that can be solved or stabilized here in Boquete, on/off hours, on weekends, holidays, and weekdays at night. The service activates by calling BOQUETE MEDICAL AND ASSOCIATES (BMA) at 6619-7911. You will be attended in the Alfa Clinic by a local physician and paramedic (Dr. Yanko Guillen, Dra. Nelly Quiroz, or Dra. Sue King Loo). All of them speak English.

As a newcomer to Boquete , it would be very helpful to know in what city these doctors practice.

You can often tell by the phone number.  If it's 720 or 730, it's Boquete.  774, 775, and other 77x numbers are David.  Doesn't apply to cell phones though.

I just looked at the list. It's clear to me in every case whether the location is Boquete, David, or Panama City. Just in case you don't know, Hospital Chiriqui and Hospital Mae Lewis both are in David. What ambiguities do you see?

I will  soon have a cataract removed. I had consultations with two doctors, Dr. Young at Mae Lewis and Dr. Petroncelli at Chiriqui Hospital. I liked them both, but I decided to go with Dr. Young. The following reason had a big impact in deciding on Dr. Young over Dr. Petroncelli:

Before a cataract removal at Hospital Chiriqui, the anesthesiologist requires all sort of blood tests, an EKG, chest X-ray, etc. Get real! I previously had a cataract removed (in Panama City at Patilla Hospital) and none of that nonsense was even mentioned. Same at Mae Lewis. Chiriqui Hospital is now just all about money. I hope to never step foot in that place again!

Re the orthopedists on the list, I had knee surgery by one listed who speaks excellent English. He's an incompetent, arrogant butcher. After $6,000, he made my knees much worse than they were before the surgery. I won't post his name publicly but contact me privately if you want to know.

Personally I would never have a cataract removed in David unless the doctor came up from Panama City.  Even then I would get lots of referrals.  The best I've heard about is Dr. Augosto Arosemena, Patilla Hospital.

Dr. Arosemena's clinic is in the Paitilla Medical Center but cataract surgeries are performed at the Centro de Cirugía Ocular in Ancon, a state of the art facility. He is an outstanding professional in this field.

Dr. Young comes from Panama City twice a month to operate at Mae Lewis. My first cataract removal was done by a doctor in PC, office in Patilla Medical Center and performs surgeries at the place Keith mentioned. Supposedly a professional in his field also. I have NEVER, NEVER been pleased with the lens he put in. (The doctor wasn't Arosemena.) Plus it was a big hassle. He wanted to examine me after 10 days. It would have been such a hassle to go back and forth from Volcan in such a short time that I just stayed in PC for the 10 days. Never again.

Dr. Young comes highly recommended. The only drawback is that he doesn't speak English.

Because he only comes to David a few weekends per month, there are always many other folks waiting to see Dr.Young.

He does not see patients by time of appointment, but in order of arrival, and works marathon sessions while he's here.

I would advise anyone to go early and take a book.

Another drawback to using a surgeon not stationed where one lives is the potential need for immediate follow-up care. My husband had a cataract removed a week and a half ago by a surgeon in David. While the surgery didn't go badly, neither did it go perfectly because, according to the surgeon, the iris was too contracted. This required a return visit  and additional medication to combat inflammation and swelling. While cataract surgery complications are relatively rare, I would want my doctor to be available should they arise.

That practice many doctors here have of not scheduling appointments and doing first come, first serve is very hard on fragile patients who can't endure sitting and waiting for hours.  I wonder if there is a way around that.  Even getting there early isn't a guarantee.  It seems that everybody gets there early.

If it means anything to anyone about eye surgeries in Panama, a Panamanian Doctor fiend of mine went to the states for eye surgery(cataracts) , because of the serious blindness some folks (19) during a short time in Panama.

H.G., if this story is true, the details need to be shared for the protection of others.

Is there a Ministry of Health report or other reliable source of the information?

There is a hearing center associated with Hosp. Chiriqui.  They test hearing and sell hearing aids, so they can probably get them repaired too.

There is a hearing center associated with Hosp. Chiriqui.  They test hearing and sell hearing aids, so they can probably get them repaired too.

There is a hearing aide company, third floor of Chiriqui Hospital.  Had mine fixed there, Dad's hearing test done.  

If someone can provide more specific information about hearing aid services (anywhere in Panama), then please either post here or send a PM to @Admin_01 so that this information can be added to this health care resource listing. By "more specific information" I am referring to name of the business, contact information, website (if any), hours of operation, location, etc.

Those postings are more appropriately placed in the Insurance forum, and therefore may be found at:
