Welcome at GP Practice Boshuizen

Praktijk Boshuizen is a general healthcare practice, open for International & Dutch Students and Expats.

Our staff speaks English, French and German and have serveral years of experience in working with patients from all over the world. We know that health is dealt with in different ways in different cultures. We realize that you may have a different healthcare system in your country and that you may need to get used to the Dutch approach. We will do our utmost to clarify it.

We are also well acquainted with studentlife and the problems that may arise.

Depending on the type of health issues, you can get inhouse care from our general practitioners, psychologist, physician assistant and doctor’s assistant.
