Medical care isnt the best but there are good options nearby. Medissimo is a private facility in Bratislava, Heinburg Hospital is about 15-20 minutes drive in Austria, and many doctors in Vienna. There was a good English-speaking dentist in Bratislava who was reasonably priced and knew how to complete the government insurance forms. - Jun 2017

No particular concerns. Medical care in Slovakia is a bit post-communist, but world class medical care is available just across the border in Austria, either in Hainburg for routine care or Vienna one hour away for any type of care. I medevaced to Vienna to have my son last year. - Jun 2015
