About me

My name is José M. Ozcariz Eizaguirre.

I was born in the city of San Sebastian in Northern Spain. I studied Medicine at the Basque Country University located in Bilbao.

After finishing my studies, I decided to move to London where I gained first-hand experience in various areas of medicine.

From 1991 to 1996, I trained in different medical specialities in several hospitals and practices. After finishing my training, I started working as a General Practitioner in London. 

Simultaneously, I obtained the Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as well as the Diploma in Family Planning.

In December 1999, I settled with my Austrian wife in Vienna. Two years later, I opened my own practice.

Being registered as Arzt für Allgemeinmedizin or Praktischer Arzt, I am familiarized with the Austrian health services and the way the Austrian health system works.

I am fluent in Spanish, English, and German and offer consultation, medical reports and certificates in any of those languages.

In view of my experience, I have a good understanding of the problems patients face when visiting a doctor in a foreign country. Difficulties in understanding how the local health care system works might occur but also patient’s expectations towards doctors might be different. I hope that my experience and command of languages will help patients to overcome these difficulties.
