One of the major difficulties that foreign residents or visitors might face in a foreign country is a sudden illness. The language gap makes its treatment even more difficult.
SOS DOCTORS can guarantee that a doctor will attend to foreign patients immediately, wherever they are, even in a hotel, any time or day, in order to facilitate their stay in our city in the case that they get suddenly ill.
Patients can call 1016 and talk with a multilingual secretary and a coordinating physician who will be informed of their health problem and give them basic instructions.
All SOS doctors who are on call and go on visits, are able to speak the patients’ language – which helps them feel safer and more comfortable – and carry all necessary equipment and medicines to address the problem.
S.O.S. DOCTORS are a member of the international organization S.O.S. MEDECINS, which was founded in Paris in 1966 and has members in most countries of the world. All organizations must operate in accordance with the principles and regulations of the French organization, something that is appreciated by the tourists visiting Athens and Thessaloniki.
Another aspect of the Greek hospitality!
