Personal Physician

Under Czech law, employees have to have a general physical to prove that they are healthy enough to work.

People who have physically strenuous jobs or who work split shifts need a yearly physical. Since I have an office job and only work day shifts then I just need a physical every two years.

In the ČR, everyone has a personal physician. Since the doctors at the clinic all speak English then it was a no-brainer to select the clinic as my personal doctor. In order to do this all I had to do was fill out a short form. The fee for visiting a doctor is 30 Kč (~$1.50). Significantly cheaper than the $10 - $20 co-pays in the U.S.
