English speaking family doctor

Hi! I am looking for an English speaking family doctor. I have two young children (age 4.5 and 2) and would love to find a practice that would take them as well as my husband and I. We are living in Pully, near Lausanne! Any recommend for where to start looking?

Re: English speaking family doctor

Almost every doctor I have seen in 35 years has spoken English. The challenge is that very few of the Dr.’s secretariat will speak English.

I could give you some recommendations in the Nyon /Geneva area but that is likely too far away from Pully.

I would suggest Vidy Med in Lausanne, you’ll find family doctors, specialists, gynocologist and paediatricians in the same practice. There’s an absolutely lovely paediatrician there, and she speaks very good English.
They’ve just opened their emergency services to include children too and they’re open in case of an emergency on week-ends and until late at night.

What is the name of the paediatrician you mentioned? None on their website list being able to speak English. Thanks!
