What about referrals?

The only specialist doctors where you don’t need a referral are with eye specialists and ear specialists.

With all other specialist doctors such as gynecologists, dermatologists and so forth you will need a referral.

Be aware that some specialist doctors have a long waiting list, especially in the bigger cities, and therefore it might be worth asking different specialist doctors if you wish to get an appointment as soon as possible.

Specialist doctors are free of charge, you will only have to pay for the medicine that they prescribe you.

Some of the treatments you will have to pay yourself, some the national health insurance will pay and for others you might have a private health insurance.
