Vernon Hills, IL (PRWEB) July 3, 2007
While Michael Moore's controversial new film, Sicko, points out the problems with U.S. health care, he does not offer a comprehensive solution to our health care crisis. However, he does hint that there is an option in seeking affordable health care outside of the United States. According to MedRetreat, this option is called "medical tourism."
The documentary certainly covers the familiar talking points, such as 47 million uninsured Americans, the outrageous and ever-increasing prices of surgery, the limitless paper pushing by large, complex organizations, and the endless debates of politicians in Washington. Still, no solutions have been implemented.
MedRetreat, an American owned and operated medical tourism service agency, would like to inform North American citizens about an immediate solution to receiving high quality, low cost surgery. It just happens to be outside of the U.S.
Medical tourism is the practice of traveling to another country to receive your required surgical procedures at affordable prices. From elective cosmetic surgery to non-elective procedures such as hip replacements, spinal fusions and hysterectomies, medical tourism is a very viable option to U.S. health care.
According to Patrick Marsek, MedRetreat's Managing Director, "MedRetreat has set the 'gold standard' in facilitating the process of receiving health care overseas that medical organizations around that world are looking to emulate. We have developed a very safe and affordable model of a medical tourist that has provided many North Americans with an improved quality of life."
One may wonder; is it safe to travel abroad to receive health care?
Judson Anglin, Director of Facilitation for MedRetreat states; "We have traveled the world to develop a comprehensive network of the most qualified hospitals having the highest international standards and accreditations. With affiliate partners in Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, El Salvador, India, Malaysia, South Africa, Thailand, and Turkey, MedRetreat's highly trained and experienced program managers will guide you through a safe and proven process from the moment you contact us until long after you have returned home." He goes on to say; "MedRetreat allows you the opportunity to experience medical travel at its best."
MedRetreat is the only medical tourism service agency in the world offering a low risk guarantee, which stipulates that for any reason if you decide not to proceed with your surgery once you have toured your chosen hospital and met your surgeon, you will not be charged for their services.
With over 800 satisfied clients, MedRetreat continues to serve the U.S and Canadian marketplace.
