Medical Tourism Lite

Your Global Resource for Dental Health and Wellness Travel

Mission - Beyond Borders

There’s plenty to think about when you’re traveling to another country – including your wellbeing.

My passion is to inform America's traveling population about safe and affordable health care available in Europe and Asia.

I travel the world with healthcare in mind; constantly researching the best medical and wellness solutions, hoping to ensure you travel is successful, while easing some of the frets you may have on the road about, “Heaven forbid something should happen."

During the early days of the Obama Administration, I spent days on Santa Monica’s Promenade, just signing-up people to vote, no matter the party.

When I joined other supporters of Obamacare, I listened to hair-raising stories about healthcare denied in the most desperate circumstances.

Baby Boomers in their 70s fuss about the high cost of travel insurance. Did you know that insurers won't even accept people after a certain age?

Rest assured that what awaits you is some of the best healthcare and dental in the world, in Malaysia, Thailand and Turkey.
