Yesterday my daughter had fiever. I already knew that she had fever the night before, but it was not until late in the evening that she got 40 °C and I got a little bit panicked. I had already, a couple of months ago, been to the emergency at the hopital of Marsa. It took very long time, and since it is 40 °C outside and also inside the building I really do anything not to go there. Then my brother-in-law got the idea to get her to the private clinic in Marsa. It is the same clinic where my son had been circumcised eight years ago. Normally we go to two doctors. One is a female doctor, Dr Arjoun, and she had told us to go to Marsa Clinic and then call her if it is an emergency. So we went there.
When we arrived and stepped into the clinic, the first thing we noticed was that the air was fresh and cold. We sighed. Alhamdolillah. The next thing was that it was very calm. It was not many people there. It is of course more expensive, about 45 TND (28 $) and the tests costs too, but for us foreigners it is worth it. At the hospital you can find specialists. At the clinic only generalists. But the generalists are also good. We were helped by a woman and she was very good. She examined my daughter thouroughly and found that she had another infection in her throat. She also found that she had bacterias in the urine.
The pharmacy is open 24/7. That is not the case in Sweden. If you want medication or any drugs after 22.00 pm, then you have to go to hospital and wait for hours, sometimes up to six hours. So the medical care here in Tunisia are very good, even though they use antibiotique more than they do in Sweden. That is the only negative part. If you have money in Tunisia, you literally live like a king (or a queen).
