The medical profession in Germany is quite unique. As opposed to some countries where help can often be found in larger medical centres and specialists in hospitals, specialised doctors are mostly in their own practice or small partnership.

Doctors that focus on children, ear nose and throat, ophthalmology, gynaecology and so on, can also be found. Insurance company can suggest names in a particular location.
