Gynecologists and obstetricians in Berlin

Hi everyone,

I'm new in Berlin and need a gynaecologist. Can anyone recommend one? I speak German, so the language thing isn't an issue, but I am somewhat uncomfortable about gynaecological examinations, so I would really appreciate it if someone could recommend a doctor who is good, nice(!), and preferably female. Mitte would be easiest, but I don't mind going a bit further if necessary. I've looked at http://www.aerztekammer-berlin.de/50_Arztsuche/index.html, but I am reluctant to choose someone at random. Thanks!

No problem! I know what it's like when you don't know where to go. I must admit I made my original appointment there as they are around the corner from my office. Luckily they are nice and it worked out well!

Dr. Henneberg in Prenlauerberg is great although I am not sure if maybe she is only a gyno..

I think she's probably looking for a gynaecologist (she wrote "female doctors" in the title but "doctor for females" in the post).

Hi Lynne,

I am going to this female Dr tonight:

Dr Eva Dudik

Kaiserdamm 6

14057 Berlin Tel 030 321 5082

I believe she speaks English and is recommended as being very nice. I will post another reply once I have been to her :)

Hi, well I went to see Dr Dudik last week. She is indeed very nice and spoke more or less perfect English. I did have to wait 50 minutes longer than my appointment time but I actually didn't mind in the end because she was so nice. A friend told me you have a better chance sticking to your appointment time if you book early in the morning (mine was in the evening). Hope this helps! :)

Hey Lalia & GoonerGal, I know this is a late follow up, but does Dr. Reinke speak english? I'd be able to muddle through in German, but would prefer to converse in english if possible.

Or would anyone have any other recommendations for Gynäkologie in Mitte or Prenzlauer Berg?

You can go to Prof. Dr. C. Köhler in Charite Mitte or to Prof. Dr. A. Schneider in Charite Campus Benjamin Franklin.

I don't speak German, and a friend recommended Dr. David Peet. His practice is near Checkpoint Charlie: Kronenstr. 55 -58, tel: 30 3069800.

His clinic specializes in fertility. So far, he's great - proactive, communicative, easy to get quick appointments. I don't know if his rates are high (I pay full whack being non-German), but suspect they may be top-end since he seems to have a lot of foreign clients and speaks perfect English.

Forget about Dr. Peet by the way. He's not as good as I thought - and quite arrogant - and will try to sell you on IVF before you've even taken your knickers off.

As I have now received 3 PMs asking the same question I though I would post my answer...

I have no idea if the lady i see speaks English. I have always spoken German to her and have never asked if she speaks English. I would just call and ask. If the receptionist doesn't speak English I would take that as a sure sign that they don't, as she is the only one who answers the phone.

Well, my appointment with Dr Geisler went really well today. He was very helpful and put me totally at ease. He spoke english but he also spoke german with me as I told him I was learning and so he said it would be good for me to practice! But when I couldn't understand he spoke in German. The receptionist/nurse was really sweet too. I would definitely recommend them:

I have been research, but am not satisfied with I have found online thus far.

I am looking for a female, English speaking gyno in Berlin Mitte.

I prefer those who have a web page and ones with English language option as its a good indicator of their practice.

Would appreciate any reccos as I need to get a pills script asap.

Cheers.

I recently had to have a gynecological procedure done here in the States. I can't recomend a gyno. obviously, but I learned something that may be helpful to you. If you're not pregnant, and not likely to get pregnant, you may want to find a gyno who does not also specialize in obstetrics. My gyno had me wait three hours while he delivered a baby (her seventh--go figure it just wouldn't slip out!) on the day before my surgery, when all he had to do was make a decision as to whether or not I was healthy enough for my surgery the next day. (Why his nurse couldn't have determined this is beyond me.)

On the day of my surgery, he'd just (fortunately) whipped out a kid. While that day was obviously penciled in for recovery, and waiting wouldn't have been so bad--no--if it were three hours I would have got really hungry without having eaten since dinner the night before. Scratch that...All that waiting, including waiting three hours the day before, was really disrespectful to me, my comfort, and my schedule.

I'm certain that I had a very disorganized doctor, who hasn't got a good system of coverage, but you don't know until you use somebody once.

If your time is valuable, I'd recommend not dealing with the baby deliverers, if you can help it.
