A space for sharing our experience by answering questions that others like you have asked before.

Can I see a pediatrician right away?

DoctorsinItaly is a very fast way to get an appointment at a doctor’s office or for a home visit, but it cannot substitute emergency centres in case of life threatening conditions. Your request will reach all pediatricians nearby within minutes. Available doctors will offer a time for an appointment, so you can pick the first option. Even the best pediatricians have last minute cancellations, so there is a good chance you can be seen today. Find out more about how it works >

How much will the pediatric appointment cost me?

Each pediatrician decides the fees to charge, so prices vary depending on who you choose to see. You will know all the prices before booking, so you can select one that is reasonable and within your budget. Generally the cost of a pediatric consultation goes from about 80 euro up to 200 euro approximately. Find out more about the prices >

Can a general practitioner see my child?

Usually not. Most primary care physicians do not regularly see children, so it is always better to see a pediatric specialist if your child is below 16. Some general practitioners who work as family physicians are able to assist adolescents, but for babies and infants a pediatrician is the best choice.

Will the pediatrician give me a prescription?

Yes, the doctor will give you a paper prescription that you can use to buy the medicines your kid needs at any pharmacy. Boxes and instructions on medications will be in Italian, but your pediatrician can help by explaining exactly how to take the medication. Make sure to take notes on this to avoid any confusion, and contact the doctor if you have any doubts.

Are there available pediatricians everywhere in Italy?

DoctorsinItaly is used by a growing number of pediatricians across Italy, so it’s always worth making a request. When you make a request for pediatric care, doctors in the area receive it instantly on their mobile phone. You will get their responses as soon as they can reply, so you can choose the time and location you prefer. Although there is no guarantee that there is a pediatrician on call, there is a good chance someone will be able to see you.

Can the doctor run a strep test?

Pediatricians are often able to diagnose a strep infection by examining your child for clinical signs. If a test proves necessary, they may be able to run it at the office, or they can direct you to a lab nearby where you can get it done. If you are certain that a test is necessary, let the doctors know in advance by stating it in your request. This will give them a chance to prepare the necessary kit for a rapid strep-test.
