Medical Checkup in Lausanne

Hey guys,

Was just wondering if anybody knew of a hospital or clinic I can go to for a regular health checkup. Never really had one and since I have nothing to do for these few days, I think it'd be time for a checkup! I have health insurance that covers one medical checkup a year.

If you guys do know a place, does anybody know what goes on during a medical checkup besides the weight and height taking? If I have any concerns, am I allowed to ask? Like if my headaches are normal or if I think there's something wrong with my digestion or something- can I ask them that as well? And obviously I'd like an English doctor.

Thanks in advance!!!

Re: Medical Checkup in Lausanne

Here we go to a general practitioner for a check up. Your insurance will not cover you for a specialist, they have higher rates.

Re: Medical Checkup in Lausanne

I can't imagine you will get an appt. to see a generalist at such last minute. However, a number of people I know have gone to the VIDY clinic which is right at the round point in Lausanne before you get on the highway. My husband went there as well as was pleased. it is set up as more of a 'walk-in/urgent' type clinic. Here's the link. HTH
