Do you need information about your rights at work in Germany?

Can any doctor give me a certificate of incapacity to work?

In principle, any licensed doctor can prescribe you on sick leave. In most cases, it makes sense to first make an appointment with your primary care physician, who will examine you and may issue a sick note. If a specialist is needed for your illness, your primary care physician can make a referral. Specialists (such as orthopaedists or ENT doctors) can also issue sick notes. However, they do not usually make same-day appointments, unless it is an acute emergency.
