El Cangrejo is home to Clinica Einstein, where world-class specialists are available six days a week, with no appointment required. An extensive check-up (30 minutes) costs you under $50 and is reimbursed by insurance. Panama City’s Johns Hopkins-affiliated Hospital Punta Pacifica is a 10-minute taxi ride away, as is Hospital Nacional and Hospital Paitilla, which are as close and just as good. For pharmacies, Farmacias Arrocha and Farmacias Metro stock everything you might need (generic and brand names).
