Doctor Recommendations

Many of us know what it’s like to move to a new city where you don’t speak the language and need a doctor in your native language. We also realize that the best way to find one of those doctors is through word of mouth from other native speakers, but that it can be a hit or miss process if you don’t run into just the right person at the right time.

This is an area in which the IWCS would like to be a resource for our members. We would
like to compile a list of your favorite doctors (general or specialists, including veterinarians) and eventually make it available on our website to members.

If you can recommend a doctor who can speak a language other than German at a very high level, please share it with us below. Member Dorothee Klein has offered to organize this information for the club –thank you Dorothee!!

A note about English-speaking doctors: Even though most medical professionals in Germany can speak some English, that doesn’t mean that a native English-speaker would feel comfortable with him or her. If you know that your doctor can speak English but are not a native English-speaker yourself, please ask them whether their clientele already
includes native speakers before recommending them.
