gastroenterologist in Vaud
 
Hi there,


I am looking for a gastroenterologist in Vaud (near to Aigle but happy to travel to someone good). Preferably someone that you have had good recommendations from or someone yourself you have visited.


I have had on going stomach problems and would really like to see someone soon.


Thankyou in advance for your help :)

Hello.

Healthcare is a bit different in Switzerland, you may need to adjust your expectations. Sorry, I'll bring some bad news.

To get an appointment soon, the best will be to get a recommendation of the family doctor. A letter from the general doctor referring to an specialist can open doors by magic. But, it will be the choice of your family doc.

Back to the soon part, hurry to get the appointment with the first available specialist. Vacations are here, specialists are not workaholics available 24/7 like other countries. Think about good recommendations for September and after.

Your location says Geneva.... so why Aigle?

A quick google search shows that are dozens of gastroenterologists listed in Geneva; I can personally recommend Michael Cummingham whose office is just behind the CMU in Champel, plus he's english if language is a problem.

I do need to change my location - am near to Aigle! :msnblush:

Thanks for the recommendation - my french is currently basic so English would be a huge plus. My main reasoning on wanting a recommendation rather than just google is that I had an appointment with a gastro dr previously here and I do not want to go back so would like a recommendation.

Will look up Michael Cummingham now! Thanks so much :)
