hello Slade23,

well, those symptoms are well known due to pollution and a tremendeous amount of dust in the air that we/you/us are breathing every single second. Well, as for your question: as to my knowledge there is no western doctor in Xian. The best is to grab a translator and march to a local, good hospital (i recommend the military hospital in Xian which has top-doctors). he will check u and give u some medicine. thats the best and easiest solution!

if anything else, let me know.
good luck,

So if I had an emergency in Xian, like a traffic accident (quite likely considering how people drive here), which number should I call, which hospital should I tell the taxi driver to go to?

110, for Police
119, for Fire
120, for Ambulance
122, for Traffic Accident

You could check this page:

http://newdynasty.com.cn/index.php? option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=sobi2Details&catid=&sobi2Id=124&Itemid=379

An "international" hospital (GaoXin) is here:

http://newdynasty.com.cn/index.php? option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=sobi2Details&catid=&sobi2Id=292&Itemid=379

They claim that they are "international". The truth is that you will need pure luck to find someone actually speaking at least english. Take a local friend with you. It's better.

Btw: Never ever get into a traffic accident in Xian/China. Just saying. Especially not as a foreigner. ;-)

is that hospital the best one to go to in Xian? I am less worried about the language (worried about that too, but thats not the main thing), but about having a proper doctor

Well, Xianese Warrior, I mean XianWarrior :-D, yes it is one of the best you can get in Xi'an. You have to understand that, China as a whole is more show than facts. Nothing is what it looks like. But depending where you are I would recommend the Gaoxin Hospital (Nope, noone speaks english, german or spanish there) or military hospitals such as the tangdu hospital (http://www.fmmu.edu.cn/) and others.

Are you looking to get injured or to get involved in an accident or why are you so obsessed in finding a hospital in Xi'an?

Again: Never get involved into an accident in china as a foreigner. It is not good :-D. Mark my words.
