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

No particular health concerns. The embassy medical care is fine, although people do get medically evacuated out for serious stuff (and pregnancy). Georgian dentists are good. - Apr 10, 2017
Medical care at the Embassy is fine. But, for anything remotely serious, expect to get medically evacuated. - Feb 14, 2017
Medical care can be marginal - May 1, 2016
None. The hospitals are decent. - Jul 17, 2014
Health care is quite poor in Georgia in general, though the U. S. Embassy had a good med unit. There are no significant health concerns, though it makes sense to get routine things taken care of prior to coming to Georgia to avoid the local health care system (dental fillings, etc). - Oct 31, 2011
The Embassy has a full-time direct-hire nurse practitioner and a local doctor. There are medical facilities around the city. - Sep 24, 2011
Healthcare is of a pathetic standard and expensive. Doctors are generally awful and not up to date. GO TO ISTANBUL FOR CHECK UPS. - Apr 27, 2011
You will get Tbilisi tummy. The Health Unit at the embassy is GREAT! - Jun 9, 2010
Medical care is a little sketchy, but apparently dentistry is good. Come prepared for your own special needs, though, as most major problems will get you medevac'd. - Oct 12, 2009
Um, yeah. Just pray you or your family members don't get sick. - Jan 27, 2009
