We use our local Spanish Medical Centre where I have found the GP not at all friendly, can we change to another in the local area?
I had reason to use the medical centre at Capo Roig last year when I had an impacted wisdom tooth which had to be removed by surgery. I was sent by my dentist in La Zania to the medical centre with a note to be admitted to the hospital at Torrevieja. However, when I got there having waited over an hour to see a doctor I was told I was not going to be admitted as I was a non resident. I had private medical insurance cover and a E1111 Medical card which would entitle me to treatment in a hospital on public cover. We pay tax in Spain as we own our own apartment and still he would not sign my form. I have problems with my heart and therefore have to have medical intervention when problems arise. I found him to be rude and dismissive to me. I speak a fair bit of Spanish and understood only too well his mumblings to me under his breath. I would have complained him but I reconed that my heart was more important and it was rising my blood pressure at the time enough. I would like to know does anybody in the Punta Prima / Punta Marina area know of a good family doctor? Next time I go out in October I am going to register with a GP in case I need help again.
