Are there any particular health concerns? What is the quality of available medical care? What medical conditions typically require medical evacuation?

You can find almost any type of doctor for your needs. This is socialized healthcare, so the quality can be less than US standards. They do have private hospitals, and they seem to have better quality of care. - Jul 9, 2016
No, sufficient medical care plus a nurse in the med unit. - May 1, 2014
No concerns. Quality is high. The Danes take a more hands-off approach to things than some Americans are comfortable with. In addition, as it is a single payer, government run system, some Americans find the impersonal feel to things a bit different. - Feb 8, 2014
Medical care can be expedited if you are paying for it, otherwise you can sometimes have a wait for services. - Aug 7, 2011
The hospitals and medical care available are very good. You can get doctors/nurses to come to your home in a pinch, and appointments can often be made same-day. U.S. health insurance is obviously not accepted, so you will have to pay and then file your claims through your insurance. - Jul 22, 2011
