Doctors in Luxembourg
General practitioners and specialists: make a medical appointment
In luxembourg, you can make an appointment directly with a generalist or a specialist doctor by calling the receptionist of the practice.
An easy way to find a doctor is by consulting the official register of doctors practicing medicine in Luxembourg via the Medical College website.
Some practitioners are also listed in the directories on medical websites (as Doctena) , which means you can do a personalized search (area of expertise, location, languages spoken by the doctor, etc.) as well as making an appointment online.
Attention: doctors and dentists only consult the week, with or without appointment.
In Luxembourg it is not necessary to get a referral from a generalist doctor in order to see a specialist and be reimbursed (except in certain cases: treatment abroad, etc.).
You are advised to always take your social security card and your medical history (blood tests, x rays etc.) with you to your appointment. Normally you can always request a copy of the results of medical exams.
Take note that if you cancel less than 24hours prior to your appointment you may still be charged!
Particularity of medical care abroad
Except in the case of the European Union where the possession of a European CNS card is sufficient in most cases, you can get reimbursed in full or in part for the medical expenses incurred except in special cases, such as the request for medical care abroad. You will need prior authorization from the CNS.
