Medical services covered by state health insurance

Preventive medical check ups

One preventive medical check up per year is free of charge from the age of 18. This aids in risk identification as well as detection and monitoring of illnesses. Includes blood test and physical examination.

Procedure: Arrange an appointment for blood test (fast prior to test) then a follow-up appointment for a detailed consultation and physical examination, as well as further tests if necessary.


The spirometry (pulmonary function test) determines lung function by measuring the volume of air inhaled and exhaled.


We offer in-house blood tests including C-reactive protein tests (CRP) to check for inflammation, blood glucose / INR (blood thinning) as well as fecal occult tests (blood in stool) which are available in minutes. For other parameters samples are sent to the pathology laboratory daily.

Blood pressure measurement

To diagnose borderline/unsafe hypertension (high blood pressure) or to optimise therapy for an existing case of hypertension we offer 24 h blood pressure monitoring. The monitor is generally collected in the morning and readings are taken over a 24h period; upon return the following day readings are evaluated and a consultation follows.

Private medical services


With the exception of yellow fever all common vaccinations are available in our practice. Vaccination fee € 10,00 excl. vaccine.

Infusion therapy

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

I base my medical practices on classic western medicine ("conventional medicine") and supplement with traditional chinese medicine according to indications and complaints. These two worlds complement each other in many pathological conditions.
