Entertaining commentary on a dazzling array of countries. The author's research ranges from first hand experiences of some organizations, to irresponsibly superficial web surfs for others. Do NOT use this book if your destination is Argentina or Brazil. Research online patient message boards instead. The "medical tourism company" this book suggests for Argentina has in real life achieved a tabloid level of infamy. Argentine publicity is finally exposing its years of such practices as refusing to deliver pre-paid services once patients arrive in Argentina, or switching the surgeon for an assistant once the patient's under anaesthesia. Once every Argentine surgeon caught on and refused to work with them any more, the company's solution was to continue advertising the surgeons' services without their consent, collect payments from overseas patients before their journeys, put patients under anaethesia, and wake them later to lie that they had undergone surgery that was never performed.
