Can anyone recommend a good Doctor at the Centro Salud in Torrox Pueblo who speaks English and not only speaks it but will!! We have lost our lovely Doctor at our surgery he has moved on and we are not happy with his replacement, we live in Torrox campo so can move to the Pueblo is we wish but I need to know who to register with who is going to be efficient.
I know the theory of we should speak Spanish and I do to a degree but don’t always understand everything and as pensioners it is not viable to take a translator every time as it is very expensive.
Would love some assistance with this problem. Lillian/Torrox
