Clinics in Saigon


When it comes to finding a place for health checkups or treatment for minor injuries, none of us enjoys a long queue and dealing with all types of red tape and delays that can exhaust us physically and mentally. For this reason, many in Saigon prefer private clinics with smaller sizes, fewer crowds, and more attentive service for extra privacy and convenience.

Even though private Saigon clinics tend to charge higher fees than public hospitals, the ease and comfort that they bring can be worth the extra money. To help you make informed decisions when looking for the most suitable clinic for your needs and budget, we’ve rounded up 8 Saigon clinics with affordable and professional healthcare services.

You can easily find all kinds of beauty salons and weight loss clinics in Vietnam offering weight loss treatment for women, but hardly any for men. For this reason, some Vietnamese men may feel alone in their battles with weight loss and think that the only way to lose weight is working out.

However, a rigid workout routine and stringent diet regimen doesn’t work the same way for everyone. The good news is that men with obesity and diets can now check out Americare Clinic, a clinic in Saigon that specializes in weight loss treatment for men.

At Americare Clinic, visitors will be guided to SculpSure, a laser-based and noninvasive treatment that helps eliminate fat from various body areas.

Because this is a nonsurgical treatment, which takes only 25 minutes on average per procedure, patients will not have to undergo anesthesia.
