June 2016 update
Skopelos is lucky to have many medical professionals living and working permanently on the island. For other medical needs many travel to Volos or beyond for consultation and treatment. This list is intended as a resource to help readers who are seeking medical advice and not a particular endorsement of one doctor over another.
Health Centre Skopelos 24240 22222. Open 24 hours a day. Whether you want to see a doctor, need a prescription, a consultation or emergency help, you can ask for advice at the front desk. If you want to see a doctor for a consultation you pay five euros. If you have medical insurance you get your medicines prescribed and pay less. In-house specialists are two general practitioners, a psychologist and two midwives. There are also off-site X-ray facilities nearby.
The Asclepeio medical center is situated on the ring road in the building where the tax office used to be.
