Re: Best female Gynecologist in Basel Stadt

Without recommending an individual doctor, the team at the Universitatspital are exceptional:

https://www.unispital-basel.ch/das-u...smedizin/team/

Prof. Hosli and Prof. Lapaire are both top-notch. We know many other happy couples that have also worked with the Universtitatspital and shared our good experiences.

The other advantage of using the team at the hospital is that you'll be among familiar faces (and surroundings) when the baby eventually comes. They also have a regular orientation night to explain how everything works.

Re: Best female Gynecologist in Basel Stadt

And for that, the OP has to have at least a semi-private insurance.

Thanks for the info.

But I heard that, we cant select a single doctor and every time we visit, we will be attended by some other doctors.

Is is possible to select only one doctor throughout the pregnancy?

Re: Best female Gynecologist in Basel Stadt

Presumably you mean a gynaecologist vs a female gynecologist. There aren't many gynaecologists who treat men...

Dr. med. Dieter Meier

Google him.

Dieter sounds like a male name. I think they wanted a recommendation for a gynaecologist that us female.

More likely he means a gynaecologist who is a woman.

If you have fully-private insurance (and had it for at least a year before your wife became pregnant), it is possible to be followed by just one of the doctors. If you are semi-private or public, you are seen by whoever is available.

Nope, those with semi-private insurance are also eligible to have their own choice of doctors. And yes, it should be had before the pregnancy (1 year, or in some cases I heard 9 months before hand).

Re: Best female Gynecologist in Basel Stadt

When I was living in Basel I used to go to:

Marie-Christin Eisenbrand
Fachärztin FMH für Gynäkologie u. Geburtshilfe
Schützengasse 37, 4125 Riehen
Tel: 061 645 25 25

I was very happy with her. She also spoke English.

My wife also goes to her for over 2 years now. She and her staff speak good English. I have been with my wife to her clinic a few times and I find her friendly. We started to consult her with the start of my wife's pregnancy.

As pointed out before, she will not be present for the delivery in hospital. But the team at Unispital Basel is great and the midwifes as well as the doctors there can speak good English too.

All the best for the future.

My girlfriend swears by Dr Anna Wagner, located near spalentor, www.basel-gynaekologie.ch, english speaking, boutique practice, so really takes the time to address concerns etc.

So at least we establish "best" is very relative as what is comfortable for one may not be to another....

Re: Best female Gynecologist in Basel Stadt

I can vouch for Fr Artztin Ludwig Diouff, have been seeing her since 2016 for post menopause gynae issues and she is marvellous, very thorough and better than any female gynae I was referred to back in the UK. I needed a minor op that was a day procedure and she referred me to a Dr Siebert at St Clara Spital, he was also excellent and explained all of the options available to me very fully. I believe he used to be at Universpital in Basel.
