where to get inexpensive "medical certificate" in Zurich? any recommendation

I was asked to present my medical certificate, to apply for work permit of another western country. Now I live in Zurich.

From my understand, it could be just a sheet of paper stating that the person is in a good state to work. Could be just stating name, nationality, date of birth, and most importantly, the stamps from the Doctor.

Can anyone recommend a doctor or doctor's office (with a good rate)?
Thanks a lot!

I canít imagin that any Doctor would give you such a certificate without doing examinations and tests. The cost of all medical procedures are standard under a system called TarMed, and so, itís probably going to cost the same whatever Doctor you go to.

If you already have a Doctor here that knows you then that would seem to obvious choice.

Re: where to get inexpensive "medical certificate" in Zurich? any recommendation

thanks for the information! I didn't realize it's gonna be a standardized process... Is there a way to avoid a systematic checkup and still get the certification? or any place to make it possible? I have searched the whole forum before I asked, but couldn't find relevant info.

actually it's just hard for me to understand why I need to show such certificate in order to work in another EU 17 country, after living and working in CH for a long time... scientifically speaking ,my cells (or molecules) are all Swiss made already...

I'm afraid not. A doctor will want to do a thorough examination and basic tests on cholesterol, diabetes, etc, before signing a certificate. He could be sued and get into big trouble otherwise.

This might get very expensive! You need to go back and find out exactly, in writing, what is required.

Chest X-Ray, blood test for diseases, urine test for sugar, reactions, hearing & eyesight, what exactly do they want?

Re: where to get inexpensive "medical certificate" in Zurich? any recommendation

I asked specifically, but was told "to proof that you can work (?!)"

I feel that they don't care about the details... they just wanted something for the officials.... I even got two samples just in local languages (no check box or anything...)

but the problem is in Zurich, no-one would issue this without a thorough examination; and that's gonna cost a lot

Work as what, and where? On an oil rig? Or just somehwere as a checkout cashier? Is there going to be heavy lifting involved, or will you be in contact with food or directly with customers (in which case you'd better be free of infectious diseases)?

So you are surprised that you can't find a doctor who is willing to lend his/her name to a "cover-my-ass" operation by your future employer ("just something for the officials"... yeah right, until something goes wrong) without actually examining you?
