    Hello,

    How do you get medical treatment in Greece when you need it? Is care similar, or very different from where you are from?

    Do you need to register with a local doctor (GP)? Is it easy and quick when you need to see a doctor?

    What is the cost (drugs, treatment, reimbursement…)? Is there a long delay?

    Where do you buy your medicine in Greece? Are pharmacies all the same? Are most drugs over-the-counter, or prescription?

    How does the hospital system work? What are the main differences between private and public care? Do you need/do you recommend private health insurance in Greece?

    Please share your experiences so new/future expats can prepare. Thanks in advance for you tips and advice!
