Hello! I am on my way over from Ireland and have two children that need to be registered in school. I have read that they need to be checked over by the local doctor first, but am having difficulty in locating one. Can anyone help?? I will be in the Narbonne region. Also it would be nice to see opinions and references to health care centers, etc.. in France. Thanks, Marlyn
Can anyone recommend english speaking doctors and dentists in the Maureillas/Le Boulou/Ceret area please. Thanks. Please remember to e-mail your replies; in accordance with French regulations, names and contact details of medical personnel must not be posted publicly to the Forum.
Ok, can anybody help me, I'm looking for a dentist preferably in Tarn, Aude, Herault but I'll consider anywhere sort of. The problem is I'm quite seriously scared of dentists (please don't laugh I'm not scared of spiders!) this is a real problem and not the same as not liking the dentist. In England I would be able to look for a dentist who specialises in 'very anxious' patients, but I'm finding it impossible here partly I think because dentists can't advertise. The nearest dentist I have found so far is in Barcelona and much as I like Barcelona it is just a bit too far to go. So if you think your dentist might be helpful could you pass on details by pm or if you're visiting your dentist would you ask if they know of anyone. My French isn't terrible but an English speaker would probably help in terms of my ability to explain the complexity of my problem. I'm writing to dentists that I grab out of the annuaire and sending them a stamp so that they can reply but not having any luck so far. I'm going to post this on other forums so apologies if you end up reading this more than once.Thanks in advance
Does know of a good English speaking dentist in the Perpignan / Le Boulou or even Figueres area. You can email me on geoffd123 at good old hotmail dot com. Cheers Geoff I took a year off and wrote a book, maybe you would take a look, www.lulu.com/geoffdrake. Be grateful it's not a book of poetry!
Can anyone recommend an English speaking doctor and dentist in Montpellier, by any chance? (Near the Antigone ideally) I'm compiling some 'help' notes for friends staying in our apartment for holidays, and wanted to be able to point them in the appropriate direction. I've asked a neighbour, but she only knows French speaking ones, although I'm sure folks will get by with goodwill and lots of sign language! I have found that most pharmacists seem to speak a little English, which is one option. Just thought I'd ask on the off chance ...... Thanks, Granny Fi
Hi, I've got an awful toothache and assume I need a filling! I'm trying to put off visiting the dentist as I don't yet have a carte vitale and I'm terrified of how much it costs. I've seen on other sites it's illegal for anyone to recomend a specific dentist, but does anyone have any idea how much it will cost to get my tooth fixed? if they do "white" fillings at the dentist over here (think mercury ones are pretty ugly!)? or if i'm still entitled to visit my dentist in the UK? (been paying tax in france since end of January 06)
