Insurance Card (Chip card)

Please bring your card to your first visit after the beginning of every quarter (January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st) for administrative reasons!


All of the information needed by you for a specialist is here in our practice and is at your disposal. Therefore, it is important that every visit to a specialist is carried out with a transfer from us. This is the only way to be sure to avoid the loss of information and unnecessary repetition of examinations.


Please pick up the first prescriptions - with your chip card - every quarter as best as possible yourself. Repeated prescriptions can then be ordered by telephone throughout the respective quarter.


Please make an appointment for every visit to our practice so that the waiting times are as short as possible. The following examinations and treatments are only available with an appointment:

  • Certficates
  • Preventative check-ups
  • Suitability for sport
  • Preventative cancer check-ups
  • Skin screening
  • Medical opinions
  • Certificates of health
  • Ultrasound examinations
  • Chiropractic treatments
  • Natural medicine treatments
  • Laboratory examinations
  • Psychological discussions
  • Individual health performance evaluations (Igel)
  • EKG / Lung function
