Dr. Prem’s guidebook on Medical Tourism provides information on cultural issues that medical tourists should be aware of prior to their medical journey. Researching the culture of a destination could help medical tourists when they encounter differences between their home country and the destination they are seeking care from.
It is important to be cautious with the food you consume in the foreign destination since methods of food preparation and quality standards differ from region to region. Medical travellers should also take into account aspects of appropriate clothing at the destination in order not to offend the locals. For example, Middle Eastern cultures tend to be more conservative in dressing as compared to European regions. For more information on cultural issues, visit www.DrPrem.com.
