Doctor Chusak & Mrs Chusak

Dr Chusak

Dr Chusak obtained his under-graduate medical training in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Khon Kaen University in the Thai province of Khon Kaen (License Number 10330). After completing his degree in 1982, he began working at the Takua Pa Government Hospital in Takua Pa. He continued as a consultant for the Takua Pa Hospital for the next twenty-one years until 2002.

In 1983, while continuing his employment at the Takua Pa Government Hospital, Dr Chusak started a private clinic in Takua Pa, one of the major towns in the Thai province of Phang Nga. Takua Pa has a population of approximately fifty thousand people, and is situated immediately to the north of the island of Phuket. The town also has a large and well-established hospital and dental clinic, which featured in the 2012 movie “The Impossible”!

Doctor Chusak in Khao Lak

In 1988, Dr Chusak went to Queen Sirikit National Institute of Child Health to study Paediatrics which is the branch of medicine associated with children and their diseases and illnesses, especially infectious disorders such as influenza and other common and tropical viral infections.

In 2002, Dr Chusak moved his clinic 35 kilometres south of Takua Pa to the beachside town of Khao Lak, where he currently practices medicine inside a newly built, modern clinic. Khao Lak is a major tourist destination approximately one hour’s drive north of the island of Phuket. The town is well-known for its many dive centres and island tour facilities, as well as for its multitude of restaurants, bars, Thai massage parlours and clothes shops.

Dr Chusak’s clinic in Khao Lak is a multi-faceted facility catering for the local population, as well as for Westerners and people of other foreign nationalities from all over the world. He speaks the English language fluently and is thus able to effectively communicate with most tourists. He is especially familiar with the common ailments that befall those who travel to tropical parts of the globe, such as cuts and abrasions, weather-related complaints, and infectious diseases.

Dr Chusak is a well-respected medical practitioner in the Khao Lak community who very much cares for the well-being of his patients. He also makes house-calls to people who are unable to travel to the clinic because of conditions that render them incapable of moving freely. All his patients speak highly of him.

Medical Treatment Nurse Mrs Chusak

Mrs Chusak

Mrs Chusak is the wife of Dr Chusak. She is a highly qualified nurse with more than 30 years experience in the field of general nursing, as well as in the area of emergency room treatments, where she has spent 12 years dealing with patients whose ailments have covered a broad range of conditions, including those acquired from motorbike accidents, other road accidents, fevers and dog bites. She is a very skilled health practitioner whose expertise perfectly complements those of Dr Chusak.

Mrs Chusak’s role in the clinic has broadened over the years to include aftercare treatment for patients who have been infected as a result of road accidents, as well as due to infections resulting from other types of cuts, abrasions and animal bites.

As a result of her persistent attention to the details of patient recovery during their diagnoses and after-care phases of treatment, the infection rate after completion of treatments in the clinic is zero percent!

The three things every modern clinic must have, at the very least, are high quality medical instruments, up-to-date equipment and the means to properly sterilize such instrumentation. Dr Chusak’s clinic has properly accounted for all these items, and Mrs Chusak has become highly skilled in their handling. She constantly uses these medical devices for the on-going treating of all burns – including sun-burns – as well as for wounds arising from simple household mishaps to motor-bike accidents.

As the clinic nurse, Mrs Chusak fulfils the obligations for efficiency, professional reliability and proper patient management. In addition, her warmth and caring nature adds a necessary dimension often required for the process of healing to be successful over time, especially for conditions that require treatment over extended periods of time. Like her husband, Mrs Chusak has endeared herself to all the patients who have entrusted her with their well-being.
