Did your child suddenly come down with a stomachache during your family vacation? Did you leave your prescription at home? In Berlin, “Call a Doc”, a non-profit organization, refers international travelers requiring medical assistance to highly qualified doctors or specialists who speak their language and possess cross-cultural experience. Berlin is the first European city to offer “Call A Doc – First Class Aid”, a new unique service designed for tourists and business travelers who fall ill or need medical attention during their visit to the German capital.

Berlin visitors reach “Call a Doc” by dialing 01804-22 55 23 62. Here they are connected to a central call agent who will take down information on symptoms, the caller’s current location and contact information. “Call a Doc” then identifies the appropriate medical professional who will promptly phone the patient to arrange the time and place for a consultation.

“We are very proud to offer this much needed service to visitors to Berlin,” said Hanns Peter Nerger, president of Berlin Tourism Marketing, which launched the service in cooperation with the “Call A Doc” organization. “Travelers to Berlin now are afforded the peace of mind that they will be well taken care off should any unforeseen medical situation arise during their visit.”

Calls cost Euro 0.24 from landlines within Germany. A contractual relationship is formed between the patient and the service provider referred by “Call a Doc”, and a payment agreement is arranged directly between the two parties.
