This list is an advisory guide for selecting a physician. Many of local physicians speak English.
The quality of medical care available is similar to the same standards as in the US, if you use the physicians' list. It is not meant to be a complete list, as there are many competent doctors in the community.
Physicians are included after a review of their educational certification and local licensure.
Inclusion on this list does not indicate exceptional competence but rather a lack of negative commentary. This list does not represent either a guarantee of competence or endorsement by the Department of State.
We must advise those who utilize the services of medical facilities and practitioners in Brazil that payment in the local medical facilities and physicians' offices must be provided at the time of services received.
