Truly international health care

For those looking for a medical centre that successfully combines the benefits of an old fashioned caring service with some of the most modern and technologically advanced equipment, then the Family Medical Centre is the perfect patient choice.

Founded more than 20 years ago by Dr Robin Thomson, who was joined in 2000 by Dr Thomas Kaiser, the centre provides patients with a unique, multi-lingual team of health professionals in two separate facilities, one in Quinta do Lago and the other in Vale do Lobo.

Patients using the centre are able to take advantage of the advanced facilities available at the centre and have immediate access to MRI’s, CAT scans and x-rays while in-house testing facilities allow for same-day blood results, cutting out the delay between tests and results.

Meanwhile, medical care at the centre does not stop when the doors close, as founder Dr Thomson explained: “We have a 24-hour call-out service for patients and this has been proven to be 100 per cent effective.  The emergency line operates 365 days a year including all bank holidays and you can be assured of medical assistance.”

For emergency medical care please call the 24 hour line on 917 214 326.  To make an appointment during normal working hours then either drop into the clinic in Quinta do Lago or call 289 398 411. Alternatively visit the sister clinic in Vale do Lobo or call 289 353 433. Full contact details and further information about all the services offered at the Family Medical Centre are available at
