NEW! Coming for appointments
- Appointments take place as usual across all specialties. In the event of changes, we will contact you.
- Stay at home if you fall ill! If you are experiencing symptoms of a viral disease (cough, rhinitis, fever), do not come for scheduled appointments, examinations or operations.
- Call 666 1900 to notify us of your illness or cancel the appointment through the Patient Portal.
- Contact us again when you are better and we will help find you a new appointment slot. If you should fall ill, also notify your family physician as soon as possible or call the free of charge family physician helpline 1220.

Tests and examinations in patients with symptoms of a viral disease

We collect the sample up to 48 hours before arriving for treatment. We also accept the result of a test taken in another institution if it has been taken within 48 hours before the scheduled treatment. The test can only be taken on the basis of a booking. We will contact you with more detailed instructions.
