Wanted to add on to this thread since I LOVED my gynecologist / OB - Dr. Jochen Eichler. He helped me through a high-risk pregnancy with patience and great advice, and thanks to his counsel and care I now have a healthy baby girl!

All of his staff members speak English, and his English is perfect.

He's located on Universitätstrasse in Zurich near Seilbahn Rigiblick.

http://www.frauenarzt-dr-eichler.ch/en/

I also have met his wife (another gynecologist who practices with him) in passing, and she's kind, gentle, and also speaks perfect English. I highly recommend their practice to anyone seeking an OB/Gyn!
Just to let everyone know - I had a very traumatic distressing experience on several occasions with Jochen Eichler's wife. I can not comment on Jochen as I have never met him or been to his practise. I can not recommend his wife Katrin and would advise anyone to stay well away from her. I found her exceptionally judgemental, condescending, very unhelpful and lacking in basic knowledge around pregnancy and support services in Zurich.

Hello.

Anyone know if Dr. Pescatore in Kloten near Zurich airport is still really good to use?

Would Altendorf SZ be too far?

If not, and seeing that your native language is Chinese, just in case you'd feel more comfortable in that language:

Dr Beatrice Hung Schreppers
http://www.frauenpraxis-am-kreisel.c...ung-schreppers
(English and German spoken as well.)

She is very no-nonsense but kind, thorough and compassionate. Her practice is very busy, there is usually a 3-4 month wait for new patients or routine appointments. If you are already pregnant, however, an appointment can usually be arranged fairly quickly.

By the way, it is not uncommon for there to be quite a long wait for new patients and routine appointments at gyne practices, moreso if you want to see an English speaker or a woman, due to demand. If you have an urgent need and cannot find anyone able to see you in a reasonable time, go to your GP and ask for a referral. While GPs rarely do any gynecology here, in a case where you need to be seen soon-ish the GP could likely help to get you in to see a gynecologist in his or her network more quickly than you could on your own.

Thank you. I have no problems speaking English with doctors but Chinese is even better! Just to be sure - I am allowed to see a gyno in another canton? But must give birth in the canon of my residence? (New to everything and super nervous)

What type of insurance do you have, a traditional model, Hausarzt model, teamed, etc?

Very broadly speaking, for non-hospital treatment, yes you can see a doctor in another canton. If you have a traditional model you can generally see any doctor willing to see you, your choice, canton does not matter.

If you have a Hausarzt model, you go through your GP first, although I believe that you are still free to choose your gynecologist even with this model. I don't have this model, so could someone who does please confirm?

Telemed is similar, but rather than go through your GP you call how if seeing a gynecologist is handled.

Nowadays you may also be treated at a hospital outside of your canton, however there might be a limit to coverage, if you are at an out of canton hospital that charges more than the cantonal rates you might have to pay the difference.

---

I have been very happy with Dr Hung and certainly recommend her.

But if you are pregnant or expecting to become pregnant soon, perhaps finding someone closer, or someone affiliated with the hospital where you would give birth, might be something to consider.

(For Ausserschwyzers the hospitals would be Lachen or Einsiedeln, both ca 35 minutes from Wädenswil.)

No personal experience, but a colleague had a good experience giving birth at the Frauenklinik at the Paraclesus Spital in Richterswil:

https://paracelsus-spital.com/medizi.../frauenklinik/

Note: Paraclesus provides 'integrative' medicine, combining 'School medicine' and complimentary; the specifics of this approach would be something to look into before deciding.

I really do not know much about this hospital or what it offers, other than my colleague now has a healthy baby, and it's close to Wädenswil. I believe that gynecology services are offered on an outpatient basis as well.


But hopefully posters in Wädi will be along soon with additional recommendations.

Re: Looking for English speaking Obstetrician / Gynaecologist in Zurich area

It's rather difficult to find a good gyn here and with gentle manners. I am sorry to sound blunt, but most of them just don't have it. Should have picked another profession, really. It's not only about the quantity and quality of info one stores in their brain, medicine was never only about that.

Re: Looking for English speaking Obstetrician / Gynaecologist in Zurich area

I quite like Dr Ulrich, she has her rooms next to Triemli hospital. It is possible to send her an email and if she does not specifically do what you need (she is a Gynaecologist who does not do births but does do fertility treatment and other more unusual gynaecological issues.

Although her website is in German, her English is very good. I find her fairly 'efficient' (As in, she asks the right questions, listens well but does not waste your or her time)...

It is possible to send her an email and she will tell you what she recommends for the right doctor...

Re: Looking for English speaking Obstetrician / Gynaecologist in Zurich area

Hi All,


I went through the thread but considering most recommendations date back to 2008, I'd like to ask for fresh advice


I'm searching for a good gyn who can do all fertility checks - do you have any recommendations, ideally near Enge/Wollishofen but open to all Zurich area.


Does anyone know / recommend Dr Patricia Faas?


Thank you!

Re: Looking for English speaking Obstetrician / Gynaecologist in Zurich area

Hello. Reading this thread I tried to book an appointment with Dr. Schrack, but she doesn't take any new patient However her assistant recommended Dr. Charpidou, who is in the same praxis. Do you have any experience with her?
Thanks.
