We are an experienced, efficient and flexible medical team devoted to meet your needs. We believe we are expected to provide a quick medical appointment in Seville, with reliable professionals who meet the highest standards of medical care, at an excellent location in the city center. We offer flexible paying options and bill to foreign insurance companies
Finding a doctor away from home: overcoming the language barrier and other fears
As a patient, going to the doctor´s office can sometimes be overwhelming. We are not only not feeling well, but we might also not know what to expect at all: we start facing many questions, like what will the treatment be like, who will be doing the follow-ups, and a large etcetera of doubts.
What´s worse: a chest pain, a high fever, severe abdominal discomfort or a broken bone can unfortunately also occur during our stay in a foreign country.
Sadly, not many doctors in Seville speak other languages; and though in Spain we happen to have one of the world´s best public health systems, seeking medical attention as a foreigner, can sometimes be a long and complex path.
This is why at Colón15 we are committed to provide the best medical attention to everyone, and very especially, to our foreign patients. Not only will we try to provide you with an immediate doctor´s appointment in your language or idiom if possible, but we also assure you that given the case that we could not solve your medical request or treat your condition at our center (e.g. like in the case you needed an urgent appendectomy or appendix surgical removal), we will refer you to the best hospital in every particular case and our medical team will accompany you through the whole process.
Colón15 - Advanced Medical Center: efficient and flexible
Bureaucracy when dealing with private medical insurance companies or the European Health Insurance Card, long stays at waiting rooms, difficulty communicating with your doctors or interpreters who never appear… all of which might lead to bad memories of the trip or what is even worse, medical mistakes or misunderstandings, due to the lack of knowledge in english language (speech, tongue, parlance, idiom or dialect).
At Colón15, we are here to help you avoid that. We offer you primary medical care and 15 medical specialties, all in one, for tourists or foreign residents in Andalusia.
Dr. Alonso, Chief of the International Patient
Our Chief of the General Medicine and the International Patient Units, Dr. Carlota Alonso, has developed a large part of her professional career at the Emergency Department of top-level hospitals in Spain, and she controls a wide breadth of knowledge in many areas, including both acute and chronic health issues. In addition, she is bilingual in Spanish and English, and has an intermediate domain of German and Portuguese.
These aspects make her the best doctor to consult if you faced any medical concern during you stay in Sevilla, both in case you need urgent medical care or whether you are seeking a General Doctor for you and your family whilst living in the city, or in the event you would like a second opinion or referral to another specialist.

The newest technologies and the latest medical trends in Seville
Our motto “Advanced Medical Center” speaks for itself. A medical team composed by some of the leading doctors in Spain, such as the Gynecologist Dr. José Navarro (Inebir), the Cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Miguel Ángel Gómez Vidal (Neolaser), the expert in Bariatric Surgery Dr. Antonio Barranco (Obesan) or the Ophthalmologist Dr. Jesús Montero (Cartujavisión), just to mention a few, together with the newest technical equipment and facilities at Colón15, makes us pioneers in many treatments in the fields of Orthopaedics, Urology or Aesthetic Medicine, as well as the first center in Seville to provide a personalized, specific and integrated approach to the medical care and guidance to the international patient.
"I have spent large periods of time in different countries throughout Europe, Africa and South America, and even though I am a doctor myself and I can speak a few languages fluently, I have always feared feeling unwell. Before travelling, I usually carry out preemptive research to determine where to go in case of any medical issues, however, more often than not the information I find is vague and unhelpful. Now that I have been back in Sevilla for a few years, working at the Emergency Department of one of the best private hospitals in town, I am even more aware of the fact that there is also a lack of holistic and integrated medical attention to the international patient here as well. This is why I am committed not only to be your doctor in my office at Colón15, but to be your overall health and procedures advisor, from the minute you first consult until the moment you are fully recovered or safely back at your home country, someone you can rely on and who you can easily reach."
We offer you promptness and comfort in an excellent location

Surgeries in 48-72 hours
Our main purpose at Colón15 is our patient´s global satisfaction. In order to achieve this, in addition to a a great team of medical professionals, it is fundamental that we have the capability to address their medical needs without delay. At Colón15 there is a fully-equipped operating room that all specialties can use for minor surgeries with Local anesthesia (Traumatology, Oftalmology, Plastic Surgery, etc) . Given our patient meets the required optimum health conditions, we usually schedule interventions within the following 48 hours, but we are also prepared to arrange urgent procedures.
If a major procedure was indicated, that would therefore need further inpatient care, our surgeons at Colón15 will coordinate with our collaborating hospitals, such as Vithas-NISA Aljarafe, and we will coordinate with them to provide you with the best possible medical care.
