    Hi Sara,

    I just found your site – thanks for putting up all this info! I think it will be a very useful point of reference for us as we settle into our new home in Split.

    Are you able to recommend any English-speaking general practitioner doctors in the area of Poljicka cesta? We are very near the various hospitals so, presumably, there will be a number of options for us in this area.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations you may be able to give us.

    Hi, I am Anish Tijore. I just want to know if there is some doctor named Justin Roger in BLK HOSPITAL who is in charge of transplantation? As I am honoured to be selected as kidney donor which I am ready to donate. But he has said to deposite Rs.9999/= to some particular account of VIJAYA BANK to get donor card of BLK HOSPITAL. I just want to know whether its genuine or not.

    I am trying to locate a doctor that worked in the Osijek school system. Her name is Zdenka Jaric – Klinovski. Any help would be appreciated. If you’re able to locate her please provide her with my name and email. It concerns a relative’s death. Thank you

      Hi Barbara,

      My sincere condolences to your entire family.

      My recommendation would be to post in the expat Facebook group for Osijek here: Perhaps they have a suggestion about how to locate your relative.
