Re: mysterious Dr.'s charge

Of course you have set up compulsory medical insurance as per the law, haven't you? What 'franchise' have you chosen? It shouldn't really be 'gazillions'?
I've got the insurance that requires me to see the GP before the specialist (i.e. the allergist or nose doctor I was really itching to visit). My franchise is 2000chf/year.

I wouldn't mind switching GPs (wasn't that comfortable with this original one to begin with) but isn't it true that every time you see start up with a new GP, they book you for an extended appointment where you get asked about everything from your family's history of diabetes to your godmother's drinking habits?

Also, don't know if it's worth switching because I plan to NEVER get sick and have to see the doctor again. On this side of the border. Except for this pregnancy thing, that is.
