      Hi Julie

      Hope all is going well.

      I had my operation, all my PET Scans and my surgeon and  oncologist  are at Bangkok Hospital – both very senior as I have connections there. Very pleased with ability, machines, service etc. I can certainly refer you to the same doctors. (Also visited Peter Mac – a top melanoma hospital in Australia – and they confirmed all procedures and advice was in line with their own thinking) All equipment is very new and flash! (also, strangely, they have periodic "promotions" on PET scan fees!) 

      However I go to see the skin doctor at Bumrungrad, he is great guy, trained at Harvard, very familiar with Melanoma, and friend of a friend. He as actually partner/owner of the Laser Skin Surgery at Bumrungrad.    I can cettainly introduce you to him too, or search for him on site – Dr Pravit.

      Please do feel free to email if you need any more information or help. 

      Live strong and best regards
