Re: Gynecologist in Zurich

I recently went to a female Gynaecologist, Dr Ulrich, located at the hospital in Triemli. She was efficient, friendly and reassuring.

I had no trouble setting up the appointment in English via email.

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

I just wondered what people's experiences were with dr Stoessel on forchstrasse during pregnancy?

I had a good experience with surgery but during pregnancy I'm not too happy, would like to change to someone more empathetic.

I can recommend Dr. Denise Dumont dos Santos. Both she and her assistant speak excellent English. I felt very comfortable with them. I actually like her practice better than ones I've been to in the US.

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

If you don't mind making a 13 mins ride by train form Zürich HB to Uster, there's a very nice women health care center it's called Gynosuisse (http://www.gynosuisse.ch/en/) all their Obstetrician / Gynaecologist speak english and even their secretaries speak very fair english. If you're hoping to get a general checkup that might take awhile as you have to book in advance and it's usually a few weeks wait, but if it's an emergency they might do an exception and attend you. The gynosuisse is right by the very same station you just have to walk along the bus stop till you reach the coop city if I'm not mistaken, read the signs you have to either take the stairs or the lift to the first floor and right after getting out you'll find the Gynosuisse door.

Hope you find this info helpful!

Greetings!

I use these guys. They are actually called Gynosense now. My doctor is Swedish and absolutely amazing. Speaks English, German and of course Swedish. I've been going to her throughout both my pregnancies. I like her because she's somewhat warmer than some of the Swiss doctors I've seen.

Gynosense is very professional and does have many English speaking doctors. The director is Japanese and is also great.

I can recommend Dr. Florio: http://www.ivreaflorio.ch/. I have been seeing her since I moved here five years ago (she handled my pregnancy, too) and continue to be impressed by her.
I would also like to recommend Dr. Florio. She was observing my wife during the whole pregnancy period, and we three are very much obliged to her.

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

Hello all,

I've been Prof. Dr. Christian Breymann's patient for my second pregnancy. Excellent care. He and his assistant both speak excellent English. Also hardly ever had to wait to be seen.

He has also delivered my baby at Hirslanden hospital. Very pleased with the whole experience. Decided to see him for all my visits in the future.

Regards
Lin

Hi,
I'll highly recommend Dr. Elena Lacoste-Urso ,Hofwiesenstr.141 , 8057 Zurich. Tel- 044 36 32 110 , www.gyni-zuerinord.ch .

Very close by for Oerlikon people.I went to her last year, during my pregnancy. She speaks good English and so does the receptionist. And she has a practice partner Dr. S.Agorasto Florou who also speaks English and she is very good as well.

Tram 11-Bucheggplatz nearest stop...

My experience with her was very good.

Good luck
RE: Dr. Elena Lacoste

I emailed to get an surgery appointment asking for a date and giving my info.
The receptionist emailed back and asked me to call. I called got a machine. Called again and receptionist asked me to repeat all the info in the email. I informed her it was all in the email. But she insisted that I say everything out loud to her. When she asked my birthdate which is in the email. I said that I would not say it outloud it that I was in my office (I had already told her she had the infor in the email). She insited multiple times and I said no I am at work wtih many people around. She said "I am cancelling the appointment" you can call me back when you can speak your birthday to me.
the thing is I that when I can call to not be around my co workers is lunch time and the doc office is closed at lunch time.

I am sure she did not want to flip between my email and her scheduling calendar. But I was left in tears. She could have kept the appointment and asked me to call back she could have been a little bit nice. Surgery is day to day for her but not for me and I am scared and she needs to understand for anglosaxons especially women above a certain age it is not normal to give out birthdates in front of co workers. I know I live in switzerland, but it is in switzerland where age and sex seem to matter the most in the workplace.

I am sure the doctor is great but the staff had no bedside manner.

I went to Dr. Friederika Bender at Gyné am See, Kohlrainstrasse 10, 8700 Küsnacht, +41 44 202 64 40. She spoke excellent English and lovely manner. I have two teenagers, so it was just an annual checkup for me.

The website mentions private insurance. I only have basic - do you know if they accept that? Ulster isn't exactly close but it seems like a good practice.

Re: Looking fro English speaking OB/GYN in Zurich area

I went to see Dr. Pescatore and my experience with him is very good. It's not comfortable for me to show my private parts to a stranger , but he does make an effort to make me feel comfortable, trying to get to know me a bit and hear about my concerns. So, I highly recommend him

Hi there,

I can definitely recommend Dr. Pescatore in Kloten near Zurich airport not only for the "mechanical" aspects of gynecology, but also the counseling side.

http://www.patrickpescatore.gyndoc.ch/

His wife also works at the same practice so you can take your choice M or F.

He has a great sense of humour too, which can't be a bad thing in his job!! (He also does a wicked Yorkshire and Derbyshire accent, that's how good his English is).

I am really happy with my doctor- end of pregnancy now- she has been really wonderful the whole way through

http://www.barbarabass.ch/

She is open Mondays and Tuesday and her receptionist and her are fluent in English- I think her husband is english so she is really great.

Hope this helps for a female ob gyn in Zurich.

Sorry to say, but I am not impressed by the fact she is discriminating people by insurance policy they have. Thus, she is taking only with half or full private insurance only. I have ended up with her colleague and it was the worst experience in my life( Dr Michaela Schimd NOT only incompetent but also cannot take any critics and in my view has very limited knowledge. I strongly recommend to NOT apply for her services unless you wanna ruin your day and feeling scared for your baby....

Hi- try dr Michael Raubner close to Paradeplatz - I am a very high risk pregnancy and he is actually consulting on my case with the head of the Gynokologie dept of the University Hospital. You would need to book though as I had to wait to get an appt. Not sure if you get a dr referral if you can get in quicker.

Hi zplum22, I was wondering if you tried either of the gynecologists in the Sihlcity area and if you had a good experience. I am in the same area and would be grateful for any info you may have. Thanks
