Chest Pain in Bangkok?
Dr Chad Wanishsawad, Interventional Cardiologist, to the rescue.
I was playing golf with friends here in Bangkok recently, and one of the guys mentioned he was going to the heart center at Bumrungrad International Hospital, because he was having on and off chest pain.
When a guy says he is having on and off chest pain in Bangkok it can be a lot of things, but I took the high road and asked if he already had a doctor?
He didn’t, so I recommended him to see Dr. Chad Wanishiwad, Interventional Cardiologist at Bumrungrad International. The guy is a star, I told him, and one of the top specialists in Bangkok for chest pain and coronary artery disease.
Dr. Chad is quadruple Board Certified in the US (internal medicine, cardiology, interventional cardiology and nuclear medicine), and trained at the prestigious National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He’s an accomplished interventional cardiologist, and was the doctor featured in the 60 Minutes segment on medical tourism that aired in April 2005.
I have known and worked with Dr Chad for the better part of 10 years. We both joined Bumrungrad International in 2001, and I saw Dr Chad’s practice grow year after year. International patients were particularly impressed with him, because he was so approachable.
In my seven years working at Bumrungrad, he was my go-to doctor for any patient suffering chest pain or coronary artery disease. Dr Chad is representative of the new breed of doctors one now finds in Asia -- US trained and board certified, working at a top international hospital, and treating patients from the around the world.
He’s a world-class doctor in every sense of the word.
