Gastroenterologist recommendations and test costs

Hi everyone,

I've recently been having a lot of trouble with my stomach/chest/throat. I've been cleared by a cardiologist that it has nothing to do with my heart, but the symptoms have persisted. My hausarzt had referred me to a gastroenterologist to get an endoscopy (and maybe also colonoscopy) done, but I didn't hear back from them last week. It's getting a bit desperate times since I'm down 15 kg in 1.5 months from not being able to eat. I thought I'd try to find someone as well on my own and ask my GP again to refer me to the new doctor. I think I have hit some walls since I'm young (27) and otherwise pretty healthy so I'm not high on the priority list.

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a gastroenterologist in Zurich? It would be better if they spoke English since, while I do speak some German, speaking about medical things is difficult. Also, if anyone has had an endoscopy and colonoscopy done could you share the cost? I have paid about 3.5k out already in other doctor's bills and am waiting on reimbursements so I would like to have a ballpark for how much I should try to get ready since I'm a PhD student and don't have a ton of disposable income. Thank you!
