Does anyone know of an English speaking GP in Wädenswil ZH ?

Hi all

I decided to put this out to the forum after the Soziale Dienste of Wädenswil advised me that they do not know of English speaking GPs. Even better if the staff is able to converse just a little in English. I am looking for :

a) A GP
b) Optician
c) Podiatrist
d) Dermatologist

preferably in Wädenswil.

If anyone knows, please respond.

Thank you all.

Maybe the Sozial Dienste are not so hot on Google as EF members!
"ÄRZTE WAEDENSWIL" shows this site. Click on the doctor's name and it gives details including the languages he/she speaks. Can't help with the languages the staff speak though. Sorry.
Hope you get whatever it is that ails you sorted out soon.

Thanks, again. I am sending her ( the Sozialarbeiterin ) the link as she did mention that if I found such a resource, I ought to send it to her! Should I mention that EFers are "hotter" than them ??

Having recently moved here from Oerlikon, I haven't changed practitioners yet. Wanted them in Wädenswil for convenience - I start German school on Monday at HBS Wetzikon which will leave me with less time to commute to Oerlikon. At the moment, English is highly preferred for medical consultation and the link very handy.

It's maybe not such a good idea to say we are 'hotter' than they are.
To be hot at something is simply to be good at it and basically I guess those of us who spend quite a lot of time on the Forum just get a lot of practice at looking things up.
I'm glad it is a help though and hope that the Social Office folk can use it too. I think the site is pretty new - parts are not even finished yet. Most people here look in the Wädi Info (small magazine delivered to all households in Wädenswil once a month) for that sort of information, but of course, there is less detail in a booklet.
Now back to Google...
