Looking for an English speaking doctor & dentist in Nyon

Hi there,

I have recently moved into a flat in Nyon and am looking for an English speaking doctor or dentist.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance

Re: Looking for an English speaking doctor & dentist in Nyon

Here in the German part, I have yet to find a doctor or dentist who does NOT speak english. I've only met about a dozen or so. I suggest finding a good doctor, then ask. Chances are they do.

Most doctors speak English to some degree (often very good), the problem is trying to arrange appointments through the weaker or non English-speaking receptionist.

I know of a English speaking doctor in Geneva, near the Airport. His phone number is 022 979 09 20 Dr Vora. He studied in Switzerland and I found him good.
His speciality is internal medicine and infectious diseases. Like all Swiss doctors, consultations is by prior appointment.
His wife is a dentist, but at the moment on maternity leave. Hope this information is of use to you.
Best wishes

Re: Looking for an English speaking doctor & dentist in Nyon

You could ask your health insurance company for a list of doctors in the area - it might contain information on which languages each doctor speak.

Last year when I signed up for my health insurance, I didn't check so thoroughly and had to make a quick decision on which doctor to sign up for - when I checked the list that included which languages the doctors speak, I've managed to choose about the only doctor on the list who wasn't listed as English speaking ...

Luckily it was no problem to change!

Remember to insist to speak English where health matters.

For the dentist: you can go to Centre Dentaire above the Signy Shopping Centre. They have dentists who speak English and overall provide an excellent service!

Beware Dentists are expensive in Switzerland..

Most places have dentists who speak English.

The Doctors I have found to be pretty good. Both our Pediatrician and main Doctors speak English. The Know it all passport www.knowitall.ch has bunch of English speaking Doctors and dentists listed in it for all around Geneva / Vaud.

The book is usually available in the Payot in La Combe shopping centre. IT's downstairs where the Migros supermarket is.
