The medical profession in Germany is unique. As opposed to some countries where help can often be found in larger medical centres and specialists in hospitals, specialised doctors are mostly in their own practice or small partnerships.

Having an ailment treated can therefore become quite a task. A general practitioner, Allgemeinarz, normally treat most illnesses then refer patients to the relevant specialist when deemed necessary.

Doctors that focus on children, Kinderarzt, ear nose and throat, Hals- Nasen- und Ohrenarzt, ophthalmology, Augenarzt, gynaecology, Frauenarzt, and so on, can also be found.
