General Medicine

CMI has an international team of practitioners offering a wide range of healthcare services in the management of common ailments and chronic diseases. The GPs at CMI call on extensive knowledge of medical conditions.

The General Practitioner (GP) is the first point of contact family members have for most medical services, the first professional person we turn to when we’re not feeling well or something else is not quite right with our bodies.

When you seek care from CMI’s department of General and Tropical Medicine, you will find doctors dedicated to understanding and managing all aspects of the general health care of adults, children, and families in Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam. You’ll also be offered preventive care and disease prevention strategies to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Your care is provided in a clinical environment. The General Practitioner Department at CMI works collaboratively with Specialists in all departments and services. This method of comprehensive care ensures that you get exactly the care you need.

CMI’s General Practitioners focus on:

  • Comprehensive care for all patients – Vietnamese and foreigners, residents and travelers – with high-quality healthcare that takes into account the Vietnamese tropical environment;
  • Collaboration, which means you may be referred to other practitioners on CMI’s multispecialty team of experts;
  • Preventive medicine care, such as health check-ups and screening.
