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. 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. (https://www.charite.de/klinikum/themen_klinikum/themenschwerpunkt_coronavirus/; https://www.havelhoehe.de/startseite.html; https://www.vivantes.de/fuer-sie-vor-ort/klinikum-im-friedrichshain-prenzlauer-berg/; https://www.vivantes.de/fuer-sie-vor-ort/wenckebach-klinikum/; https://www.keh-berlin.de/de/coronavirus). We are working hard to enlarge the waiting room so that the distance between the patients is guaranteed in the practice, furthermore we try to care for patients in the practice as little as possible. Please not that we cannot completely avoid contacts between patients. Therefore, please use our online appointment service for the acute consultation.

2. If you have an infection without significant symptoms or another uncomplicated illness and you need a certificate of incapacity to work, we can send it to you easily by post. Please register by phone or preferably by email.

3. We will try to maintain the care of our chronically ill patients with a scheduled appointment in these difficult times. 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. Come with the above Symptom not just in practice at your appointment!

4. If you need a follow-up prescription / referrals and you are a patient in our practice and you are afraid of a possible infection, please contact us by phone or e-mail. We will also try to solve this unbureaucratically.

For all of us, this pandemic is a big challenge; 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 open mind and a friendly face. Our team will thank you;
