【看CP學英文】來自印度的Dharamjeet(簡稱DJ)目前在台灣中央研究院擔任研究學者,待在台灣長達六年的DJ透過拍攝YouTube影片,分享自己在台的看病經驗,直呼「台灣醫療健保系統是全世界最好的」!

Dharamjeet, or DJ in short, is currently working as a research scholar at Academia Sinica in Taiwan. The Indian national, who has been in Taiwan for six years, shared his experience of visiting a local doctor to YouTube, calling Taiwan’s healthcare system “the best in the world”!

影片中,DJ表示自己待在台灣六年期間生過好幾次病,有多次看病經驗的他透過這則影片介紹在台看病經驗,並且實地前往台北小診所拍攝看病流程,分析台灣與印度看病經驗差別,也提醒在台外籍人士看病前須知的注意事項。

From the outset, DJ explains that he was often sick during his six years in Taiwan, meaning and that he visited his doctor.

When a caught a cold amid the COVID-19 outbreak, he tried to document his experience from the perspective of a foreigner.

To this end, the Indian scholar aims to remind foreigners in Taiwan of what to do before visiting a doctor.

他貼心地提醒,若是你要去看病,務必事前確認診所門診時間,因為每間診所的看診時間不盡相同。

First, you should check the clinic hours beforehand, as the opening time varies from clinic to clinic.

以他過往自身看病經驗,他發現台灣醫生通常不會給病人注射,反而會開各式各樣藥;在印度,醫生注射病人是相當常見的,而且印度醫生常常開重藥(500mg)。

Also, he remarked that doctors in Taiwan usually do not give injections to their patients, but rather prescribe a variety of pills.

In India, on the other hand, it is quite common to receive an injection. Pills are usually prescribed for serious conditions (doses of 500 mg or more).

DJ點出第二個台印醫療差別在於醫生,他發現台灣醫生話非常少,DJ推測話少原因或許是語言,看醫生時,基本上只要大概解釋一下自己的病症,醫生就會給你處方,拿著處方、健保卡就可以到藥房拿免費的藥。

A second difference between Taiwan and Indio is the doctors’ work attitude, he said.

Taiwanese doctors don’t speak much, he said, adding that the reason might be the language barrier.

All you need to do when seeing a doctor is to explain your condition and the doctor will give you a prescription, he explained.

當DJ前往藥房拿藥時,醫護人員也都全程用英文向他解釋用藥方法,讓他能輕鬆理解該如何服用藥物。

When DJ went to the pharmacy to pick up his medication, the medical staff told him how to take his medicine in English for maximum convenience.

第三,他注意到台灣醫生喜歡開非常多的藥,每包藥袋裡有各種顏色的藥物,有時都搞不清楚每個藥的作用。

Last but not least, he noticed that Taiwanese doctors like to prescribe a lot of medication, with each bag containing various types of pills, which sometimes would make him confused.

最後,DJ在影片中貼心建議來台外籍人士,台北大部分醫生都會說英文,但若是到了偏鄉地區,可能會有語言溝通問題,但是就盡量解釋自己的狀況、帶台灣朋友、或是用Google翻譯,應該也不會有太大的問題!

DJ stressed that most doctors in Taipei speak English, but if you’re in a rural area, you may have trouble communicating with the medical staff.

Still, you should try to explain your condition, he said, suggesting to bring a Taiwanese friend, or use Google Translate. It shouldn’t be too much of a problem, he continued.

影片引起網友熱議,紛紛留言,「台灣的醫療和健保真的是非常完善」、「不管是在是都市或鄉下,台灣醫生的英文程度都很好」、「台灣醫生水準就算説英文不流利但用英文寫出來應該都看的懂喔!」

In response to the video, many commented that “Taiwan’s medical and health insurance are perfect,” while another said, “Taiwanese doctors speak very good English, no matter in the city or the countryside.”

Someone also wrote: “Most Taiwanese doctors can read English even if they don’t speak English fluently!”
