Need to visit a hospital in Athens

Jump to last reply

So I'm not familiar with the medical system in Greece, I need to visit a hospital in Athens in a couple of days time (13 March) and was hoping somebody could give me some advice.

I just had minor surgery in Santorini (infected, ingrown toenail) and the doctor told me I needed to get it looked at by another doctor in two day's time, at which point I'll be in Athens (well actually he originally said to come back to see him, but I fly out tomorrow).

We're only there for one full day (two nights) so I was going to sightsee during the day and head to a hospital in the afternoon, on the assumption that I'll be sitting around there waiting for quite some time.

In Australia, we have public hospitals, which are free, and private hospitals, which can get quite pricey. I don't know what Greece has, but if that's also the case (my original surgery in Santorini was free) I don't want to accidentally go to the wrong hospital and end up with a huge bill.

I'd really appreciate some advice. If it helps, we're staying at a hotel in Plaka.
