Frequently Asked Questions
Why should you have a check-up?
No one likes to get sick. With the medical resources we have available to us nowadays, we are able to detect diseases or their risk factors (which often do not cause any symptoms) at an early stage so that countermeasures can be taken if necessary.
Who should get a check-up?
In principle, everyone should have a check-up at least once in their lifetime, especially from the age of 40; in specific situations, particularly when there are risk factors or the patient has an underlying condition, it is a good idea to have one earlier.
What does a check-up in our clinic entail?
The patient's medical history is recorded and analyzed, and the patient is given a thorough physical examination. Most diagnoses are still made this way today. This is followed by a blood test (preferably at least a day in advance so that all the results are available on the day of the examination), and, depending on the selected program, technical tests to check all the patient's bodily functions. Finally, all the findings are collated and discussed with the patient, who is then provided with individualized recommendations. A written report is also compiled in understandable language. All the tests are non-invasive, painless and safe. Please allow approx. one and a half hours for the check-up (depending on the program).
What happens when a significant finding is made?
We take responsibility for the patient, i.e. whenever a finding is identified which requires further clarification/treatment, we refer the patient in question immediately (with their prior consent) to the appropriate specialist within our extensive network so that the best possible treatment can be started as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Is a check-up covered under health insurance?
Check-ups are not covered under basic insurance; however, there are numerous supplementary insurance policies which cover at least part of the costs.
