Doctor in Estepona

We're staying in Estepona this week and having a great time. But my daughter (7) has been complaining of a sore ear so we'd like to get it looked at it before we fly back on Friday as don't want any complications on the flight. Are there GP's or similar in Estepona and how would we go about making an appointment?

I suggest that you go, with your EHIC card, to the ambulatorio in central Estepona.

It is on the corner of the Avenida Juan Carlos I and the Calle Cristóbal Ruiz Méndez,.Go into the "Urgencias" and show the card - and the little girl!

Hope all goes well for you.

Best wishes

The ambulatorio urgencias is not a hospital emergency department, of course.

Whenever I have been to Urgencias in Estepona - e.g. with a child from the school next door - there is never anyone there except the staff.

I think perhaps that the situation is different here from in the UK.

Best wishes

Are you talking about the sea water Mark A?

I'd like to re-iterate what Mark A says about Dr Peter Furness - he is a fantastic doctor - experienced and professional yet very approachable and personable. We had to call him to the hotel to tend to my wife and found him exceptional.

Nothing wrong with going to the ambulotorio. We took our kids to the one in San Pedro several times with ear infections. First class treatment. Also took wife when she had a bad chest infection.

The staff there wer lovely.

As TI says it's not an emergency place.

It opens at 0800 tomorrow.

Good luck
