Health care in Korea for ESL teachers. List of hospitals/doctors

The following information and list of physicians and dentists, known to speak acceptable English, has been prepared by the U.S. Embassy in an attempt to be of assistance to American citizens. The list is not meant to be an exhaustive one, nor is it intended that inclusion in the list be construed as U.S. endorsement or recommendation of the physicians and dentists so included.

To assure good health and to make your visit here as rewarding as possible, you should be aware of the existing health hazards and those facilities which you may need to use in protecting yourself against disease. The Seoul city water supply is chlorinated and some of the major hotels have their own chlorination systems. Although the water is chlorinated it is best to drink carbonated beverages, hot tea, hot coffee, beer or wine. Eating salads and uncooked vegetables may be unsafe. Avoid eating raw fish.

NOTE: Anyone re-publishing names from the following list must accompany such names with a conspicuous statement as follows:

"These names have been furnished by the Consular Section of the American Embassy, Seoul, Korea. American consular offices at any foreign post will, upon request, furnish a similar list of physicians and dentists to any individual.

The American Embassy, Seoul, Korea, assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or hospitals whose names appear in the following list."
