How do I contact the doctors in Florence?

No login or sign-up required. It’s easy and it only takes a minute to contact all doctors. Take the short survey by pressing one of the red button. Explain your medical need, and your preferred time and day for the appointment. Send your request and wait a few minutes. You will receive an email or WhatsApp message every time a doctor responds to your request.

Can I have an online video visit via Skype/Zoom with a doctor in Florence?

Yes, of course you can have a video consultation, but there’s also no need to use Skype. Our proprietary platform allows for safe online consultations and virtual care. When you make your request on the website, select “Online” at the question “Where do you want to see the doctor?”. You will receive available times and prices and can choose the provider you prefer.

What is the cost to see a doctor in Florence?

Each doctor sets the fees to charge, but it’s up to you to choose who to book with. The variety allows you to pick a low cost option, a standard fee, or the top of the list no matter the price. You will always know the cost before booking, we don’t like surprises. Generally the cost of a consultation with a doctor in Florence goes from about 50 euro up to 150 euro approximately.

Can I see a doctor in Florence urgently?

DoctorsinItaly is a very fast way to get an appointment with a physician and it can work as an alternative to urgent care for many conditions. It cannot substitute emergency centers though, and it is not meant for emergency needs (i.e. potentially life-threatening conditions). Your request will reach all English-speaking doctors nearby within minutes. Providers who are available will offer a time to see you, so that you can pick the first option. Even the best doctors have last minute cancellations, so there is a good chance you can be seen today.  Find out more about how it works >

Can I get an ultrasound, or an x-ray?

Yes, you can! The multi-specialty clinic DoctorsinItaly Florence is a radiology and diagnostic imaging center in the center of Florence. You can book an x-ray, an MRI, a CT scan, ultrasounds, and other diagnostic procedures and lab tests. If you are not sure what type of exam you need to do, you can see one of the doctors from the medical group to get a referral and directions.

Will the doctor give me a prescription?

Yes, if necessary, the doctor will give you a paper prescription that you can use to buy the medicine you need at any pharmacy. If you are having a video consultation online, your prescription will be sent over email. Some medications contain controlled substances and may require the original hard copy of the doctor’s prescription, so if you need a refill make sure to specify it in your request to avoid being disappointed.

Can I see a doctor in Florence over the weekend?

Yes, you can! Doctors in Italy uses an app that doctors have on their personal phone, so it’s open 24/7. If you send a request, the doctors will offer their first available slot. If you need to see a doctor after hours or during a weekend or holiday, we suggest to extend your request also to house call options and virtual care. The medical offices may be closed, but the doctors are still willing to help you when you need it.

Is this a service for tourists?

Yes and no. We care about giving fellow travelers fast and easy access to care, but doesn’t everyone value convenient and caring medical assistance? Doctors in Italy is built for everyone who expects fast and efficient care, with great doctors who speak English and other languages. Doctors in the network will do their very best to keep you healthy in the short and long run, whether you are a local resident, a study abroad student in Florence, an expat, a globetrotter, a backpacker, a digital nomad, a recently relocated family, a business traveler, a design week guest, or anything in between. We focus on the international community in Florence and Italy, but also assist Italian patients on a regular basis. If you speak Italian, you can try our video consultation service Tivisito.

Can I get tested for STD in Florence at the Doctors in Italy Medical Center?

Yes, you can make a request online and our team will guide you. A doctor will help you choose the right tests, and then you’ll go in with an appointment to collect the samples. Once your results are in, if anything reads positive, the doctor will help you get the right treatment or referral. Find out more about STI testing in Italy >>
