Pediatrician in Oerlikon area

Hi,


I recently moved to Oerlikon, Zurich.
I have a 5 months old son and I am looking for a pediatrician in vicinity.
Could someone recommend few English speaking pediatricians in Oerlikon area? My zip code is 8050.


Regards,
Ullhas

Try http://www.doktor.ch/kinderaerzte/ki...rzte_k_zh.html . Most of the doctors speak well enough to convey the message :-), although some don't. Just speak slowly and emote well if the Doctor doesn't speak/understand English well enough. I take my kids to Dr Angelo Cannova (
http://www.doktor.ch/arzt/cannova-an...8052-arzt.html) and they have a English speaking doctor.

Re: Pediatrician in Oerlikon area

Thanks alot for the reply.

I have following questions:

1. How is your experience with Dr Angelo Cannova?
a) Is he well experience to diagnose and give proper treatment?
b)Does he takes sufficient time to understand our concern and give advices?
2.Do the assisting staff(atleast receptionist) speaks english?
3.Is it easier to get an appointment for emergency atleast on same days? I prefer to go concerned pediatrician first(if open in working hours) than going emergency.

Sorry for exploding with lots questions. But as you may know with kids it gets really difficult.



Cheers!

1. a) I hope he is, I take my kids to him, you see.
b) Dr. Cannova himself is a nice gentleman would hear you out quite patiently, but his English is next to nothing. I generally take appointment with another Dr at his practice who speaks English and does take lot of interest in what you say.
2. Yes, they do.
3. They are generally accomodating once in a while, but you should contact Swiss Medikids or Kinderspital in case of emergencies. They will anyway talk with your doctor first. It is really very difficult for the doctors to give time outside regular appointments. But there is no harm in calling them first. I have had to do that twice and almost immediately got an appointment each time.

Regards

Re: Pediatrician in Oerlikon area

I heard a lot about how difficult it is finding a pediatrician in Zürich especially where I live in Oerlikon. At the CSS towers there opened recently a big family practice center for primary care and they have several pediatricians that all talk English fluently and some even Spanish or French. I am happy with Dr. Rössler since he cares a lot for my two children. At the moment you get appointments quickly.
