Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

We arrived without appointment and he advised that he would see me but I would need to wait a bit so he could see his patients that had appointments. That is fair. We waited about 1 ½ hours. He spent about 30 minutes with me and gave me a requisition for various blood tests. We also made an appointment for the next morning to go over the results. The Lab is the next door over from his office.

Cost for this 1st visit was XPF 7000 

The lab work was 3990 that included various blood work and urine tests.

They also gave me a code and password so I could view the results on-line later in the day. (as they did for later test including the Cat Scan.  It even allowed me to download the actual Cat Scan!
