U.S. Embassies and Consulates maintain lists of physicians, health care providers, and medical facilities for distribution to American citizens needing medical care. The inclusion of a specific physician, health care provider, or medical facility does not constitute a recommendation and the Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by the medical professionals, medical facilities, health care providers, or air ambulance services whose names appear on such lists. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. Professional credentials and areas of expertise are provided directly by the medical professional, medical facility, health care provider, or air ambulance service.
