MedinAction is an on-demand, English-speaking medical service that delivers a qualified doctor to your doorstep, 24/7. You can book your licensed physician online through the MedinAction website, iOS app, or by phone/WhatsApp (+39 320 4065709) at any time, scheduling to see the physician the same day. MedinAction can meet you wherever you are, be it at home, your hotel, the office or school. Whether you are a tourist, student, working professional or just someone in need of medical assistance, MedinAction can help you get the treatment you need, fast.


You can also live chat with a doctor, just go to the website or download the MedinAction app on the Apple Store.

Beyond house call visits, MedinAction will help organize appointments with local English-speaking clinics and specialists in the area should you require blood tests, an x-ray, stitches, a MRI, ultrasound, sports medical certificate, or more specialized care. MedinAction also serves as a liaison between you and Italian doctors to alleviate the stress of the language barrier. Should you find yourself in a public hospital and struggling to communicate, MedinAction will rush to your side to mitigate miscommunications. Besides English to Italian, we can provide Spanish-to-Italian translation services.


MedinAction collaborates with a variety of local Florentine physicians, including GPs, specialists and mental-health professionals. This inclusive service and expansive network of providers mean that they can find the best solution to your medical problems. MedinAction accepts direct billing with several travel insurance companies. All other payments can be done in cash or via Paypal.  



MedinAction was co-founded by Italian brothers Andrea and Gianluigi Guerriero. Andrea, a doctor, and Gianluigi, a lawyer, created MedinAction after seeing the demand for better, faster, more comprehensive English-language medical services for expats in Italy. Started originally in Rome in 2015, MedinAction is now expanding around the country into major cities like Florence, Milan, Bologna and Venice. And MedinAction is always just a text or phone-call away no matter where you are if you need to talk to a doctor for advice.


What else? You can follow MedinAction on Twitter and Facebook. Plus, checkout their blog for advice and information on all things medical in Italy, from registering to use the Italian public health system to learning how to navigate an Italian pharmacy.
