English speaking doctor in Allschwil?

Hello there;

We moved to Allschwil (BL) and we better find a house doctor / GP one of these days.

Any one who can recommend an English-speaking one close by?

Also, we got two sons, on aged 7 months and one of 7 years. I seems to be normal to take the little ones to pediatricians (sp?) here. What is the advantage over the GP, if the kids are generally healthy?

In Denmark, we had a GP who took care of us all, I think a bit like the English system.

Tia

Martin

Re: English speaking doctor in Allschwil?

Check out doktor.ch for doctors in your area, some of them have website so you can see the languages the speak. It is normal to take your children to a pediatrician instead of a GP, that's just the way it is done here. For me I know when my kids are sick they are seeing someone who is specialised in dealing with children. You should register with a pediatrician ASAP as they are your first point of contact in an emergency that does not require an ambulance.

Re: English speaking doctor in Allschwil?

Hello Martin

This list was given to me by my relocation company. They say they are english speaking:
GPs in Allschwil
Dr Adrian Benz Grabenmattweg 38 tel: 061 481 4949
Dr Raymond Perret Baslerstrasse 35 061 481 1727
Dr Jean-Claude Venzin Baslerstrasse 254 061 481 84 55

Paediatricians (I´d recommend you go to one for your children)
Dr Cordelia Teelmann Ulmenstr 14 061 481 33 45
Dr Markus Bücker-Hofer Steinbühlweg 13 061 481 53 63

And for info the main hospital if you need accident and emergency is Kantonsspital Bruderholz 061 436 36 36

Try out and if you arent happy it is perfectly acceptable to change. I´d also recommend you post a query on the Basel Childbirth Trust website. Seach on this name and you should find it.

Annie

Well, paediatricians seem to be the way to do it here. On my todo-list for tomorrow.

I know Kantonsspital Bruderholz. My wife was stationed here when "we" got pregnant with the boy who is now 7 months - the first 6 months of pregnancy was covered there. We commuted between Allschwil and Copenhagen every weekend!

Very helpful forum. For German-speakers, there is hallo-schweiz.de, but i only came across this a couple of days ago.

Best regards

Martin

In Allschwill one minute walking from the tram number 6 terminus is the Dorfplatz Praxis. Oberwillstrasse I believe.
Dr Caroline Trutmann works there and speaks perfect English, as do a couple of the girls in reception.
