Do you know that French doctors make house calls? To have one come to your home, call SOS Médecins: For Paris: 01 47 07 77 77; for Lyon: 04 78 83 51 51; for Reims: 03 52 74 06 07. Note that you must have either a landline or a cell phone with a French phone number to use these services. Do not use SOS in an emergency; they are not emergency-service physicians.
In an emergency:
Dial 112. This will put you in contact with multi-lingual emergency services.
