I go to Isabelle Rossetti in Maureillas. Absolutely excellent. Lovely lady, thorough, spends time to talk and think things through.... Enough English to manage a consultation though by no means fluent.
I've had several doctors since I moved here (they keep moving away. Hope it's nothing to do with me! :oops: ) but she is by far the best for competency and kindness.
Only problem is that you can have a long wait in the waiting room because she always takes longer with patients than allocated.

Isabelle Rossetti
18 Boulevard Jean Jaurès, 66480 Maureillas-Las-Illas

One of the unforeseen consequences of women being in the majority among newly-qualified doctors ( and a good thing too ) is that their partners, usually male, cannot find employment when the doctor chooses to go and work in a remote village. Hence the phenomenon of medical deserts forming in rural communities. We are lucky to get a doctor at all, let alone one who can speak English.
