English speaking Dr in Winterthur?

Can anyone recommend an English speaking doctor (GP) in or around Winterthur?

And while I am asking, an English speaking dentist as well.

Cheers

Pacman

A Good GP in Winterthur?

We are now living in Winterthur (postcode 8404) having come from the UK.

Can anyone recommend a good doctor for us?

I am 72 years old and I prefer to approach a GP that already has a really good reputation and who speaks good English. We are not sure how to go about this and do not know enough people here in Winterthur to ask.

Re: A Good GP in Winterthur?

Hello! I see you are looking for a doctor in Winterthur. I too come from the UK originally and now live in Winterthur, so maybe I can point you in the right direction ! A good starting point is the website WINTIMED, listing doctors in Winterthur. Since you live in 8040 which is Oberwinterthur, I took a look there and saw there is a group practice there called Aertzehaus Stadtrain Winterthur. They list, among others, two doctors who claim to speak English, French and German. Their names are : Dr.med. Daniel Grob and Dr. med. Reto Pampaluchi. I have no personal experience of either. It probably would be a good place to start, however,and if you ask for a recommendation to a specialist, that should not present a problem. Here is their address: Frauenfeldstr. 124, 8404 Winterthur. Tel. 052 242 88 88, and Email, aertzehaus@bluewin.ch I hope this helps. Kind regards, Glenda.

Re: A Good GP in Winterthur?

Thank you Glenda, but I do not really want to pick out Doctors just from a list, I value far more having personal recommendations. Perhaps this is going to be difficult, but I am still hoping. We do not need a specialist thank goodness we are in good health, but we would like to find a good Doctor.

How long have you been living here? We are from Birmingham and have been coming here for years - we did find a Doctor, that we have not seen often, but when we needed him, were very unhappy with our experience and will certainly not go back.

Re: A Good GP in Winterthur?

Fortunately, I've not had much need for them, but honestly, after five years I've kind of given up on GP's in Winterthur. One worse than the next.

The only half decent experience I've had is with the Bellevuepraxis in Zurich, which is just five minutes walk from Stadelhofen bhf, that you can get to from Winti with the S12.

Re: A Good GP in Winterthur?

I've sent you a PM. I have a GP in 8408 (technically Wulflingen, along the 7 bus line), she is fluent in English, she's on the ball, but also works well with my specialists. One of the issues in Winterthur is that some specialists take a long time for referral, so I've kept mine in Bern.

Re: Looking for a doctor in Winterthur

We are too! Have you had any luck? It is not easy to know how to find a good Doctor through recommendation, when one does not have enough contacts to ask. Please let me know if you have found someone yourself.

Looking for General Doctor in Winterthur

Hello everyone,

I'm new to Oberwinterthur and I'm looking for a good English speaking general practitioner nearby. I prefer not taking the train into Zurich but I have heard that the doctors in Wnterthur can be slow in sending you to a specialist. Anyone have a good doctor they can recommend or how I should go about finding one? Many thanks. Lucy
