English speaking doctor in Bern??

I was looking for some help...i have been looking for an english speaking doctor in Bern as I need to go ASAP. My german is not at a level that i could attempt to explain my situation well enough. I have had no luck in finding one, and wondered if any one knew of someone??

Failing that, can i visit a doctor in Zurich (i work there, so it is the next logical place to go). I have seen on the forum there are english speaking doctors here. Do i just need to ensure that my health insurance covers me at this practice?

I am still in the process of arranging my health insurance, and find it all a bit confusing

Any advice/thoughts much welsome. N

I think i need a general doctor in the first instance, and then will be referred to a specialist.

Dr. Steiger
Thunstrasse 13
3005 Bern.

If you decide to go to a doctor in Zurich, the clinic at the HB has doctors that are quite fluent in English IME. And there is the added bonus of being able to go outside of work times.

Re: English speaking doctor in Bern??

I went to The Permanence clinic at Zurich HB last week. It was busy (I hadnt made an appointment), I took a number and waited about an hour. The doc spoke perfect english & was very friendly. I think if you call ahead, you'll get an appointment for 1 or 2 days time, otherwise you can just call in. And there was no problem that I didnt have my health insurance sorted out yet, I could just pay cash.

Permanence
Hauptbahnhof
Bahnhofplatz 15
044 215 44 44

be aware that your insurance might not cover your consultation in Zurich unless you have that as Zusatzversicherung...
