gynecologist for young woman

Hello,

I moved to the geneva area recently and I am looking for a english speaking gynecologist, don't care if obstretrician or not. My insurance will not pay the cost, so if anyone knows how much a visit costs I would be gratefull, just to be prepared.

thanks

Not sure why insurance will not pay, presume you have swiss insurance with a high deductible. Costs will vary depending on what you need done, length of consultation, lab tests, etc.. very hard to say.

Re: gynecologist for young woman

thanks for the link, actually I was hoping for a personal suggestion.

My insurance is a foreign one and covers only in case of emergencies/accidents.

Not sure what your circumstances are but just so you know, if you are resident in Switzerland, you should get yourself sorted with Swiss health insurance or you will find yourself in a backdated bill nightmare in a few months time.

When you registered with the local commune the clock starts ticking for you to get all your paperwork in order.

If you are just here as a tourist, it's fine, but just so you know.

Re: gynecologist for young woman

You can try Dr. Friedrich, who works out of Clinic Beaulieu. You should find his contact details on the other site noted above or by google. He speaks very good English, but be aware he has a very busy practice so I am not sure if he is taking new patients or if you can get an appointment for some time.

As for the insurance, assume you are intern or similar. But as the other posts notes, if resident here and don't fall into one of the exceptions, please double check that your insurance is acceptable or switch to a swiss insurer.
