Welcome to the Parris Center. Your home for medical tourism in Panama.


Medical Tourism is an emerging global trend. Every day, more and more people are choosing to take their elective and routine medical care abroad. Not only can they get the required treatment at a mere fraction of the cost but there are no long and unreliable wait lists. Add to this the chance to explore a fantastic country full of culture and history and it's easy to see why this trend has become so popular!

In Panama, health and medical tourism is growing rapidly. Factors drawing medical tourists include Panama's tourist appeal, position as a hub for international travel, and use of the American dollar as the official currency. Many of Panama’s doctors are bilingual, board certified, and accustomed to working with the same medical equipment and technology used in the United States and Europe. On most procedures, Panama offers savings of more than 50% compared to the US and Europe.
