consultation

first consultation

During the first appointment, I conduct a thorough medical history and examination based on Western Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  This is important in order to understand the interrelation between symptoms, diseases, life style and stressing events, that occured during the patient´s life. Often, patients are not even aware of these relationships. This is the reason, why I ask my patients to prepare prior to the first visit:

Please write down all symptoms, diseases and questions you have and bring all medical reports and imaging and all drugs and supplements you take.

 

During the consultation, I can see whether further check-ups such as special laboratory analysis or imaging are necessary. Then I inform my patients about treatment options that are best in this specific situation.

It is a special concern to me to give my patients a good understanding of what is going on in their body and how a healthy lifestyle may contribute to staying healthy and preventing disease and rapid aging.

The first consultation takes in general 1,5 - 2 hours depending on the complexity of the problems.

Further consultations take in general 30 minutes to 1 hour. Frequency and length of further consultation depend on which specific therapies are needed.

 

payment

It is important to me to have sufficient time for my patients. This is the reason, why I am in private practice and do not have contracts with public insurances. Public insurances refund only a minor part of treatment costs to the patient. Private insurances may cover up to 80% of treatment costs. Please contact your insurance company to find out, which costs are covered by your insurance.

 

My medical fees are based on the time I spend with a patient:

 

1 hour               160€

1/2 hour            80€

acupuncture     90€

for mesotherapy: time + fees for ampules needed

 

Payments are made by bank transfer after consultation. The receipt may be submitted afterwards to the health insurance.

 

cancellation conditions

For each appointment, the specific time needed is reserved for each patient.

It is no problem to postpone or cancel appointments earlier than 2 working days prior to the appointment.

However, when appointments are cancelled on short time notice, the reserved time will be charged.

If you cannot come to your appointment, please notify us at least 2 working days in advance.

We ask for your understanding.
