English speaking Fam Dr. In Basel

Does anyone have a family doctor in the Basel vicinity that speaks english and can be recommended personally? I am sure there has to be a thread on this, but I have been looking and have not found. I have Melanoma, and need to have it removed ASAP. I know I need a fam Dr. 1st, then the referral to a specialist. Please respond if so.... thank you for the time.

Re: English speaking Fam Dr. In Basel

Sorry I can't offer specific advice about a GP, but you may want to double-check your insurance policy to see if you can go directly to a specialist.

Unless you have a policy that requires you to go through a 'gatekeeper' of some sort (usually called a 'GP' policy if you need to visit a family doctor first, or a 'Telemed' policy if you need to consult with one of your insurer's doctors by telephone before seeking specialist treatment), you should be able to go directly through to the specialist of your choice.

Hope this helps, and good luck finding someone quickly. I'm sure it's weighing on your mind.

Re: English speaking Fam Dr. In Basel

Thanks Village,
I did not know I could go straight to the specialist possibly. Good info to know. I will call and see if I can reach an english person at the insurance co. Been struggling with that too. UGH! Yes it really is scary right now. Confirmed Melanoma, the size larger than an eraser, rough, cauliflower looking, blue/black and sore around it. had 5 removed when I was a kid, so there is history. Appreciate any recommendations and information on how the system works here.
S.

GP:

Dr. med. Astrid Lyrer - Gaugler, Fachärztin FMH für Allgemeinmedizin - maps.google.co.uk
Feierabendstrasse 74, Basel - 061 272 17 12


And round the corner from her, dermatologist.
Dr Andreas BRüNGGER, dermatology
Dr. Andreas. Brüngger. dermatology. Addresses and Coordinates. Cabinet. Schützenmattstrasse 77. 4051 Basel. Google Map. Phone: +41 61 271 71 63

Both speak English.

Personally, I would shoot first and ask questions later in this situation.

Good luck.
