My name is Guillaume Barucq and I’m an English-speaking doctor. I’m a General Practitioner practicing in Biarritz since 2007.

I studied Medicine at the University Victor Segalen of Bordeaux and I’ve done my internship in family medicine at the Hospital of the Basque Coast in Bayonne and Saint-Jean-de-Luz where I worked in various departments : Emergengy Department, Neurology, Hematology,  Internal Medicine and geriatric service.

I see Family Medicine as a true medical specialty in which the physician take care of the patient in all his dimensions : physical, psychological and social.

I’m advocating a preventive approach to health care : prevention is better than cure.

As a first-line treatment, I always give healthy living advice : hydration, nutrition, physical activity, sleep and stress management.

I promote the benefits of aquatic activities in my book « Surf Thérapie » and on my Blog Surf Prevention.

I study the benefits of water therapy used in thalassotherapy centers and thermal cures.

I’m interested in Environmental Health, whether it be the beneficial effects of a preserved environment or the potential harmful impact of polluted air or water with all the emerging diseases that can result.

I am committed in a health policy based on prevention and a real health democracy.

Dr Guillaume Barucq
