  1. Is this How Health Treatment Works in Germany?

    I wonder how does appointment system for specialists work? Do I always have to take an appointment or I can just walk in a specialist office and wait for checkup?

    I did go to the trauma surgeon who specializes in hand and foot surgery. How do I check if they take public insured patients or not?   House doctor recommended a sports clinic but the doctor is on holiday now. Not sure what to do now lol

    So I just went to house doctor and she was also baffled what am I doing there. According to her, she can not write MRI and only a specialist doctor can write MRI for KNEE.   Now they have given me a case # and have asked me to make appointment to a new specialist. My knee will probably become okay itself until I get the MRI.   Really bad first experience.   Should I talk with my health insurance company or they are also helpless?
  6. I hope you all are doing great. I recently moved to Germany and I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or this is how treatment works under statutory health insurance? I'm insured by AOK Plus in Chemnitz.   I fell down and had a knee injury few days ago. I decided not to go to emergency as it was not urgent and thought I will go to the house doctor first. She recommended me to a trauma surgeon. When I went to that trauma surgeon, the receptionist asked me to go to another trauma surgeon which was on the other side of city.   I went to the trauma surgeon and finally met the doctor. He recommended to have an MRI. Now I have to go to my House doctor tomorrow again to get a MRI receipt so I can actually get MRI. So I have visited clinics 4 times before getting an MRI.   Is this normal? If not where did I go wrong? Should I have directly gone to specialist doctor (to save visits to house doctor)? I also don't understand why I have to go back to House doctor to get an MRI receipt? Why can't the specialist give me MRI paper?
