Doctor in Geneva for Lower Back pain

Hello

I am staying in Switzerland and having a good health insurance coverage. I am having a lower back pain due to which I am not even able to stand for more than 5-10 mins. Also, I have a very stiff neck.

I wanted to see a Orthopedic doctor in Geneva but having a very hard time finding one.

Would really appreciate if the experts in the group can guide me on the same

Regards
Parag

If it's that bad I'd go to the emergency department at your local hospital.

If you can't stand for more than a few minutes and have a very stiff neck then yes, it is.

If you don't want to do that then contact your family doctor tomorrow and see if they can see you asap. A referral from them will get you into to see a specialist much more quickly than you trying to get an appointment on your own.
