Most of the doctors face this question during their preparation for Germany. This is not an easy question to answer too. We will go through several scenarios.

No. You don´t need a consultancy.
Scenario 2: If you fall into any of the following, probably you need a consultant
1. No German language knowledge
2. Requirements of documents from Germany (For eg. Defizitbescheid, Translations)
3. You don´t want to spend time with bureaucratic hurdles
4. You like to have a mentor who can guide with all steps

If you plan to choose a consultancy, choose somebody from Germany.You need support with process in Germany!
The following things need to be considered before you join a consultancy
1. Presence in Germany
2. Experience with the process(Choose someone who has the back up of Doctors; who else will understand medical field?)
3. Proper Guidance (Not somebody advises for Health Care Management Courses!)
4. Guidance with complete process (Not just admission to a language school and the promise that the school will take care of you- No, they won´t!)

How do I know that my Consultancy is genuine?
All businesses need a registration. This is the best way to detect frauds in the market.
Ask for the registration. If they are not providing the same, probably they don´t have one!
Companies from Germany:
By law, all companies in Germany should provide there registration details in the Impressum section of their website. If no Impressum is there, they don´t exist in Germany.
Company form: Superior forms of company details (For eg. GmbH or higher) can be checked in the website https://www.unternehmensregister.de/
Just an address in Germany or Location in Google Maps is not enough! Anyone can do that.
