As practice for general medicine we are responsible for the long term care of our patients. This includes prevention, education and treatment of conditions that do not require a specialist, and referral to a specialist when necessary. We also provide day-to -day care for chronic patients.
General practitioner care for acute and chronic illnesses
Basic Psychosomatic Care
Basic psychosomatic care aims to find a possible psychosocial background in diseases early in treatment and in that considers somatic and psychosomatic shares in treatment.
Family doctor-centered care
is a voluntary agreement between a GP and an insurant. The patient commits himself for the minimum duration of 1 year to consult his GP first in case of any occuring health issues. Emergencies, consultation of gynaecologists, ophtalmologists and dentists, as well as health issues occuring in geographic distance from your GP are excluded. The GP will treat the patient whenever possible and will refer the patient to a specialist or hospital where needed. This results in the GP having detailed knowledge of the patient's medical history and the running or past treatments and examinations.
- Preparation and aftercare after ambulant operations
Disease Management Programs are standardised care programmes for chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, asthma, COPD and coronary heart disease; i.e. guideline based therapy, patient training and quality assurance. There are no additional costs for patients.
If you have acute health problems that make it impossible for you to visit our office or a chronic illness that prevents you from leaving the house, we will be glad to visit you, provide you with medical care or take blood samples in your home. We also do house calls in nursing homes.
Checking the vaccination status makes sense at any age. Missing vaccinations should be caught up on immediately according to the recommendations for the respective age.
- dementia testing
- abdominal aorta screening in men over 65
Regular health exams and tests can help to find problems before they start or early, at a time where chances for successful treatment and cure are better. Your health insurance will pay for a mediacl check-up every three years. It includes a thorough medical history of yourself and your familiy, a check of your vaccination status, a complete physical examination, a urine test and a blood analysis to determine glucose and total cholesterol levels.
- abdominal Ultrasound examination
An ECG is used to see how the heart is functioning. It mainly records how often the heart beats (heart rate) and how regularly it beats (heart rhythm). It can give us important information, for instance about possible narrowing of the coronary arteries, a heart attack or an irregular heartbeat like atrial fibrillation. Depending on the indication we can perform a so called rest-ECG or a long-term ECG for 24 hours.
Long-term blood pressure measurement
You will need to wear a blood pressure cuff for 24 hours. It's connected to a small, portable measuring device that automatically measures your blood pressure at set times and records the readings. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is used, for example, to see whether blood pressure levels vary greatly over the course of the day and night or whether they are constantly elevated. During those 24 hours, you can do all of the usual things you would otherwise do over the course of the day. If you are especially active at certain times, you can make a note in a diary. Then the doctor has a better idea of how to interpret the recorded values when evaluating them.
Lung function test (spirometry)
Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breathe out in one forced breath.
The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a noninvasive diagnostic test that compares blood pressures in the upper and lower limbs to determine the presence of peripheral artery disease of the lower extremities (PAD).
Travel medical advice
Travel medicine includes pre-travel consultation and evaluation, contingency planning during travel, and post-travel follow-up and care. Information is provided by the WHO that addresses health issues for travelers for each country as well as the specific health risks of air travel itself. Please not that your statuary health insurance does not pay for this service!
- Consultation on living will and care directives
health or medical certificates, attests
Certificates and attests for submission to employer, school, offices, gym, inusrance or others can be issued in our office. The costs for these attests depend on content and extend as well as the tariff for doctors (GOÄ).
