About Patients Beyond Borders
Patients Beyond Borders is the world’s most trusted source of consumer information about international medical and health travel.
....from Patients Beyond Borders' Founder Josef Woodman
Patients Beyond Borders did not come about in a vacuum. When I was first examined for a complex dental condition, I well remember the sticker shock that accompanied my diagnosis, and the many frustrations I encountered attempting to find the best, most affordable medical solution, first here in the US, then abroad. I also recall how pleasantly surprised and gratified I was to eventually connect with talented, qualified, customer-driven professionals who listened to my story, evaluated my needs, then took the right steps to help me access the right care at a great price, and ensure my safe trip home.
Since my treatment, I've had the pleasure of meeting so many patients like you who are seeking access to safe, affordable, quality-assured medical care. As always, the journey involves a community of trusted relationships that build confidence and comfort, and pave the way for a successful medical outcome.
Through our work with leading American-accredited hospitals and clinics, international Ministries of Health, Ministries of Tourism, top private hospital associations, and public-private initiatives, we have located the world's most trustworthy medical destinations, the top facilities, doctors and specialists around the world. Our mission is to help connect patients like you locate the highest-quality, most affordable care, and to provide information and advice that helps give you the confidence to make the best choice among your many options.
