It’s as if the Eternal City has sent you on a wild scavenger hunt, but the prize is much more valuable than candy or jewels: it’s a doctor who can understand your concerns without the meanings getting lost in translation. As you probably know by now, Italy’s national health system is of very high quality. However, two things may deter you from using the SSN: long wait times to be seen and the language barrier. If you’re struggling to find high-quality medical service in English in Rome, read on to discover the prize.
English Speaking Medical Center in Rome
There are numerous private clinics in Rome that promise to cut down on the waiting time – tempi d’attesa – for a medical appointment, but the numbers get whittled down when it comes to English-speaking clinics. If you’re simply looking for an out-patient, multi-specialist facility, you might consider visiting FirstMed Centers. All of our doctors have had significant international experience during the course of their medical careers, and are available to investigate your medical concerns with you. In addition to being an international facility, FirstMed is located near the city center. It is easily reachable by tram, metro, and bus at the ‘Policlinico’ stop.
Not only does FirstMed stand out by accommodating both Italian and international patients in both languages, but we also accept a range of international and travelers’ insurance policies. This means that you can get this care at no extra cost to you. Whether you’re a tourist or traveler, an expat, or an international student, finding a doctor who is in tune with your needs is important for you and your family’s health.

Graduated from the University of Siena, Dr. Gatti performed undergraduate research at Yale University, and served as a consultant for the World Health Organization (WHO) headquarters.

English-Speaking Telemedicine in Rome
If you’re looking for a GP, pediatric, or orthopedic telemedical visit, our doctors are available remotely. With telemedical visits in Rome, you don’t have to brave the traffic or bad weather to seek a doctor’s advice. This approximate half-hour slot gives you the opportunity to have your medical concerns evaluated by a professional. Telemedicine can also be a great method of follow-up for a previous appointment. You can talk with your doctor about any changes in your condition, the effects of a prescription, or ask any additional questions that may have escaped you during the appointment. Although this consultation is not a replacement for a conventional in-person visit, it could be useful to have a medical evaluation and consideration of your problems.
House calls in Rome
If you’re too sick to go out or you prefer to be seen in the comfort of your own home, consider having a house call. FirstMed offers you the opportunity through our partnership with MedinAction to have a house call for your various medical needs whether it be a GP visit, pediatrics, a COVID-19 antigen test, or nursing services. And, of course, they are available to communicate in English!
