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

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).

If you would prefer a Dr in the city I used Dr Pierre Villars who is located in Seefeld. I had a very problematic pregnancy & he was brilliant; no cold hands.

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

Hi,

I'm looking for an english speaking Gynae for my wife. I've tried contacting all of the above mentioned doctors and they are either too busy (waiting time of about 6-months) or in one case nooone picks up the phone.

Can someone please recommend an English speaking gynae in the city (preferably female).

Thanks!

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

Hi Tiger,
I recently had an appointent with Dr med Arlette Wirtz, Falkenstrasse 25, 8008 Zurich (near Staedelhofen).

It was only a check up, but after two pregnancies with a very good gynae in Germany I was keen to find someone here I can feel confidence in.

I only waited 2 weeks for an appointment - which I am beginning to believe is rare here and was very satisfied with her practice, equipment and her attitude. She also speaks English as does her assistant.

Her website is www.arlettewirz.gyndoc.ch

Hope that helps

Thanks Maxhd,

I called them and the earliest they can give me an appointment is 30 July! Not sure if thats normal with all Gynae. Others that I called had a waiting time of 4-6 months.

I guess I won't get dinner tonight!

But thanks again for your help.

any recommended OB/GYN doctors in Zurich?

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear your personal recommendation for
an OB/GYN in the Zurich area. I will be having my first
baby here and prefer not to randomly select an doctor from
the phone book.

Thanks!

Good (preferably female) & English speaking Gyneacologist in Oerlikon, Zurich

Hi All,

Could anyone posses any knowledge of a good (preferably female) gynaecologist in Oerlikon or other nearby areas to it in Zurich.
Another important aspect is that Gyno should be an english speaking one.

Thanx in advance
