Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I come to your practice with a chip card?
Yes, of course - we prefer a referral of your general practitioner to be able to send him/her a detailed report after the examination.

What should I do in case of emergency?
If you feel well enough, please contact your general practitioner first to have his/her opinion on the issue. He will then be able to transfer you to our practice. In extreme cases you can be entered into our station B34 at the Bethanien Hospital for an observatory stay. In such a case please use the emergency numbers.

Is there parking space available in close proximity to your practice?
Additionally to the good public transport connections, the Falkensteiner Strasse offers sufficient parking space. Disabled patients with a walking deficit may use our own parking house. Please inform us in advance.

Do I have to be fasting?
Usually not; however, specific treatments require you to be fasting. In such a case we will inform you in advance.

Do you have a lot of diabetic patients?
40% of the German population will be suffering from a form of diabetics by the year 2010 (CORA-Study). In vascular medicine this ratio is even larger as nearly every one of our patients suffers from some sort of diabetic respiratory problems. Hence, we have a lot of experience with diabetic patients and their specific needs. We co-operate closely with multiple practices that are specialised on diabetic patients, a wound management team and an ortho- technical team that is certificated for the treatment of diabetes patients.

Do any treatments require the use of contrast media?
Most treatments or examinations do not need such substances nowadays. Furthermore, we try to minimise the use of rays to ensure you a harmless treatment. Phlebographics are only seldom used nowadays.

Coagulation (Blood-Clotting) Self Control

Who should test and control their blood clotting?

Those patients who are dependent on the use of coagulation-inhibiting substances, such as:

  • After a thrombosis with Marcumar
  • A Strong tendency to thrombosis with Marcumar
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Lifelong Marcumar dependency after vascular operations
