"I hooked up with my doctor when I arrived and she has been great in overseeing my prescription needs ever since. I had to have an angioplasty a few years ago and the hospital, doctor and operation services were excellent. The visit and procedure cost a fraction of the cost compared with the same thing in the US. Living in Hungary is especially good for heart conditions."
