Here you will find an overview over the services we provide in our clinic.
your health is important to us
Tiny or large, young or old, with acute or chronic illness: We see ourselves as physicians for the whole family and as contact persons for all questions concerning your health and well-being. We help you find the right therapy or refer you to an appropriate specialist. We also make home visits.
« Polyvalent » care is at the heart of our practice and we cover the entire spectrum of general medicine.
In Germany, the public health insurance (gesetzliche Krankenkassen) only provide “adequate, economical and sufficient” medical services (SGB V §§2). However, since “sufficient” does not always mean the best therapy or optimal examination, we also offer some individual health services (IGeL) that are not covered by health insurance.
General Medicine / Family Medicine
Part of our responsabilities are diagnosing and treating acute and chronic diseases, making screening examinations, home visits, and much More…
Here we inform you about our travel clinic, cosmetic services (« fillers » and botox ) as well as ketamine infusions to treat selected patients with depression.
Individual Heath services
Many services are no longer paid for by the insurance companies, such as for instance allergy testing, intramuscular injections against back pain, laboratory tests (vitamins, HIV test) etc.

Check-up-35 (every 2 years)
Everybody with a health insurance can participate in this health check-up from the age of 35.
The so-called “check-up 35” is an important instrument for the early detection of cardiovascular and renal diseases as well as diabetis.
It includes a detailed interview, a comprehensive examination, blood pressure measurement, a blood sample to determine blood glucose and cholesterol levels, a urine test, an explanation of the results and conclusions of the assessment, and a discussion of all necessary measures.
If you wish, this examination can be completed, e. g. with EKG, ultrasound of the abdomen or more extensive lab exams. Please check with your doctor if your health insurance company pays these extra costs.
early detection of cancer
From a certain age, « publically » insured persons (gesetzliche Krankenkassen) are entitled to early screening examinations for cancer.
The following screening tests are suggested and recommended:
from the age of 20
Discussion, cervical examination, cervical smear, cytologic examination (Pap test), gynaecological examination of the breast and discussion of the result. Usually performed by the gynaecologist.
In addition, from the age of 30

In addition, from the age of 55

Holter blood pressure
If pathological changes in nighttime blood pressure are suspected, or to monitor the success of an antihypertensive therapy, or simply to confirm a diagnosis of hypertension, a Holter-BP can be made. Blood pressure will be measured regularly over a 24-hour period to create a blood pressure profile.
The procedure is very simple: We will put the blood pressure cuff, which is connected to a small recorder, onto your arm in our clinic. From then on, you can and should follow your normal and usual daily activities. Your blood pressure is now automatically measured several times per hour. An activity protocol, written by yourself, may later reveal links between effort and changes in blood pressure.
An electrocardiogram is recorded for 24 hours to allow monitoring of the electrical activity of the heart. This is particularly useful if looking for causes of palpitations, dizziness and fainting.
As with long-term blood pressure measurement, you should follow your normal daily routine after the ECG belt is applied. The data is automatically saved and transmitted to the watch that you will receive from us and can be evaluated by us the next day.
The ultrasound waves used during this exam are totally harmless to the patient; there is no radiation exposure. The upper abdomen and thyroid gland can be examined.
Treatment of chronic diseases (DMP)
There are structured programs (Disease Management Programme) to better care for chronic patients. They allow optimal treatment based on scientific knowledge and at regular intervals. These treatment programs are suitable for patients with chronic bronchitis (COPD) or asthma, type 2 diabetes mellitus or heart disease.
Pulmonary function test
By measuring lung volume, one can diagnose lung disease and examine the success of therapy.
In order to detect early limitations or a threatening loss of everyday skills and to be able to counteract them, we carry out a geriatric evaluation.
In addition to the vaccinations recommended by the Standing Committee on Immunization (STIKO) of the Robert Koch Institute, our office also offers travel vaccinations, including yellow fever vaccination.

Individual health Services (IGeL)
Certain services can only be offered as « individual health services » (Individuelle Gesundheits-Leistungen = IGeL) because of social legislation: these services are payable by the patient and are not covered by the « public » health insurances (gesetzliche Krankenkassen), as they cannot or have not demonstrated that they are “sufficient, useful and economical and do not exceed the level of what is necessary” as required by law. However, sometimes you may want more than just the “necessary” or “sufficient”. We would be happy to advise you on these services and explain what we consider medically reasonable for your individual needs.
