Arrangements are made for international patients before they leave their countries in order to help them decide which treatment and specialties will best suit their needs.

Upon arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), patients are provided with transportation facilities, subject to early request, by KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital. KLIA provides a comfortable lounge if you have to wait for your transport to arrive. Please notify the hospital of any last minute change in plan and we will inform the doctor concerned so that the procedure can be rescheduled accordingly.

If prior arrangements are not made, patients can seek information from concierge at the airport lounge on our hospital contact details and contact us directly via email or phone call so that we can make arrangement for appointment with our doctors.

Patients are then driven to the hospital entrance where they will be guided to the Customer Service and International Patient Care Centre for their booked appointment and prior registration. This will reduce the patient's waiting time.

A translator will be provided upon request.

The doctor will conduct examinations and carry out treatments, as required. The patient is either admitted or taken to appropriate center, clinics, or operations theatres as determined by the Doctor. After the treatment, they are discharged and escorted to the pharmacy, before they go back to their hotels.

Additional activities can also be arranged upon request by the patient. Catering not just for patients, the team also looks out for family and friends accompanying the patient by providing shuttle services to popular shopping centres and tourist destinations, while the patient is undergoing treatment.
