Dear patients,

Due to the current situation of corona viral disease (COVID), we have established the following rules for our practice in order to maintain outpatient care:

1. In our doctor's office there is an obligation to wear mouth and nose protection. Please only take this off when requested by our practice staff.

2. Please contact us by phone or email before coming to our office without an appointment. You can use our online appointment service for our general medical consultation.

3. We do not test for coronavirus / COVID in our practice because we lack the options for further care and isolation of the patients. If you have a reasonable suspicion of an infection with the coronavirus, you do not come to our practice in order not to endanger our older chronic patients.

An overview of the practices that you treat if you suspect COVID-19 can be found here: https://www.kvberlin.de/30patienten/39corona/covid_19_praxen/index.html.

4. In these difficult times, we will try to keep our chronically ill patients cared for with scheduled appointments. To protect fellow patients, it is imperative that they contact us beforehand if they have cold symptoms / cough / fever / sore throat. We will then reorder your scheduled date.

This pandemic is a big challenge for all of us, we all have to adapt and help each other. There will be restrictions, waiting times and inconvenience during this time, we apologize for this, but it is inevitable. Please help us with a cool head and a friendly nature. Our team will thank you.
