Spanish healthcare system
One of the best things about the Spanish health care system is that there are many free services available to the public and can be considered one of the best in the world. For example, you can visit any public hospital, walk-in clinic or health center for free. But a requirement is almost always that you must be proficient in the Spanish language. The beauty of our clinic is that we can help you in your own language and also that almost all of our care is covered by your Health Insurance. So did the family doctor.
The family doctor
The family physician is an important part of our clinic. So important that we have three Dutch registered family physicians, Dr. Henk Koenders, Dr. Birgitta Skavoll Berrahou and Dr. Harold de Nijs.
In addition to the general practitioners in the clinic, we also have many knowledgeable Dutch specialists such as a radiologist, cardiologist, dermatologist, plastic surgeon, gynecologist, ozone therapist, a nurse practitioner and health assistants.
We also often have medical students from the Netherlands in training.
Centro Medico Alfaz is a private clinic where we treat all patients who need a doctor’s appointment, for prescriptions, referrals, wound care, blood tests, ECG, 24-hour Holter recording (blood pressure) and much more.
We work every day and can make house calls outside our business hours if necessary and can speak to patients in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Flemish, German and English.
Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
