The medical centres listed below provide a range of consultation and treatment services, and are located close to BUSAC. The GPs (general practitioners) listed below charge nominal fees for their services, provide referrals when necessary for specialized assessments and treatments, and supply receipts which may be used when filing for reimbursement from your insurance provider (GeoBlue).
