When I first moved to Cologne in Jan 2016 and needed to see a doctor, it was a herculean task to get around. Finding an english speaking doctors seemed next to impossible. Finding a receptionist who understood enough English to give me an appointment was an even more difficult.

Almost two years in the city, 3 levels of German language, and many mishaps later, I have (sort of) found my way around the medical system and have a list of doctors that speak enough english to uphold a conversation.

A word about health insurance in Germany:

There are a number of health insurance providers in Germany. We are insured by TK (Techniker Krankenkasse) as a couple, and monthly premium is deducted from salary – just as income tax. Most doctors won’t entertain you unless you have an insurance.

And now to the list of doctors – please note that I have not been to all of them but they come recommended from friends and acquaintances. I have underlined the ones that I have personally visited.
