Koblenz or Cologne

Does anyone have a recommendation for an English speaking physician in Koblenz or Cologne. Looking for physician to prescribe Paxlovid to treat Covid.

I think you will find that many if not most Drs will speak English.

Prescription comes from a doctor, not from the decision made by the patient.

Why two different towns on the Rhine?

OP has a long thread in the Lounge on this - their friend is on a river cruise heading to Amsterdam and thinks they have Covid though the test was negative. They are hoping to get Paxlovid at one of those two cities as they are then still within the time slot for using it after getting symptoms.
It has been pointed out on the other thread that German, like most European, doctors are reluctant to prescribe it unless the person is a risk, and they would probably need to leave the cruise to be supervised while taking it in case something goes wrong.

Ah, sorry OP and heti, didn't see the other thread. I hope he gets better. If he is on a cruise why not just go to the cruise Director, I know Viking can be a bit shoddy but when I did one (though with another company) the queue for ambulances during midday was pretty steady but not especially so given the average age on the boat.

Hi, I haven't been to this doctor but they speak English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. Their telephone number is there. They are in Cologne. There may be others, this was just a quick search (you can do the same with ' englischsprachiger Arzt Koeln' or 'englischsprachiger Arzt Koblenz'). I would first find out whether you will be allowed to get back on the ship with the medication as heti and bilbo advise, perhaps by ringing the practice.
