Hey Heidelberg Locals...

It's about time I found myself a doctor, general practicioner, primary care physician, however it might be called here. My previous background is patient safety so I know all too well what even the slightest communication problem with one's doctor can lead I am hoping to find a physician with very, very, very good English. Does anyone know one that they could suggest (via comments)?
Thanks in advance!


  1. Have you asked at the US consulate? They may have a list.

  2. You've been tagged!

    1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
    2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
    3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
    4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
    5. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

  3. Hi there,

    First time commenting :)

    I'm not sure if you need a GYN but I thought I'd drop you a comment with her info just in case. Her name is Dr. Meryl Ann Manigault, in Handshuhsheim. She's an American but has been in Germany practicing for some time now (I think 20 years or so..). Her lead assistant speaks excellent English as well. Here is the contact info:
    Dossenheimer Landstr. 40 Heidelberg 69121. Phone: 06221 400774. Oh, and her office is easily reachable via the 24 street car to the OEG Bahnof stop.

    I wish I had a GP rec for you but sadly I don't have one yet either (after living here for over a year...). I even had to go to the urgent care clinic on Thursday. Which was a pretty good experience though considering. If you need info on that let me know.

    Good Luck!

  4. Mary, never even thought of that!

    Jen, thanks for the recommendation! I am going to need a GYN at some point; unfortunately they are hard to avoid ;) What/where is the urgent care clinic? I am curious, sounds like it could be useful info!

  5. Sure here you go:
    Ärztlicher Bereitschaftsdienst,
    Alte Eppelheimer Straße 35

    It's right near the Hauptbahnof.

    I hope you feel better soon,

  6. it's totally helpful, but i can't help but be a teensy bit creeped out by the fact that some anonymous reader who has been following but never commenting gave you a rec for a gyn. no offense to helpful jen ;)

  7. Sara, some people just have a fear of commenting. I happen to know there's at least one person out there who reads this blog regularly and has never left a single comment (unless she's secretly doing so under a pseudonym).


I love commenters!
