Diagnostics

We offer you the following diagnostic measures:

  • ECG
  • Exercise ECG (ergometry)
  • Laboratory tests
  • Long-term blood pressure measurement
  • Lung function test
  • Sonography
  • Doppler examinations of the leg arteries

Diagnostics include all the examinations that a doctor performs to determine a disease.

The diagnosis often starts with an anamnesis – this means that the doctor asks his patient about his complaints (symptoms), such as when they occur, where it hurts and also what the pain feels like. Information about previous illnesses or diseases that have occurred in the family usually also provides valuable information for making a diagnosis.

For physical diagnostics the doctor uses his senses, i.e. eyes, ears and sense of touch. For example, he looks closely at his patient, palpates him or uses a stethoscope to assess sounds from inside the body.

The third group of diagnostic procedures is called apparatus because more complex aids are needed for this. These include ECGs, X-rays or ultrasound as well as laboratory diagnostics, such as blood tests, lung function tests and blood pressure measurement.

Prevention and advice

We offer the following preventive examinations and consultations:

  • Cancer screening
  • Skin cancer screening
  • Nutritional advice
  • Driving licence checks
  • Sports checks

Medical prevention and early detection support health.

Check-ups are very important and should therefore be carried out regularly. With our preventive medical check-ups we can detect and treat diseases at an early stage.

In most cases, the statutory and private health insurance companies cover the costs of preventive medical checkups. 

I will be pleased to advise you in my practice on the preventive medical check-ups offered by the statutory health insurance companies and supplementary preventive care offers.

No one can deny the importance of health care and early detection of disease today. Physical activity and a balanced diet help to prevent diseases.

Existing health risks can be detected  or illnesses can be detected at an early stage through early examinations.

Many diseases can be better treated by starting therapy early.

In addition to the usual treatments, we also offer our patients the following preventive medical check-ups as a health insurance benefit:

J 1- Youth health check

From 12 to 14 years of age, children and young people are entitled to a preventive medical check-up. J1 includes a thorough physical examination and a discussion of particularities in the behaviour and development of young people. In addition to a physical examination, J1 focuses primarily on mental and school development and possible abnormalities. It also deals with the young person’s behaviour with regard to smoking, alcohol consumption and media usage. If necessary, the doctor will give advice and guidance on a healthy lifestyle. The vaccination protection is checked.

Check-Up 18-34 Years

In this age range you have a one-off entitlement to health care. Health risks are recorded and, if necessary, a blood test is carried out. The vaccination status is checked. If health problems arise, you will receive a prevention recommendation.

Der Check-Up 35 Years

is carried out at three-year intervals (blood and urine tests included).

Skin Cancer Screening

From the age of 35 years, people with statutory health insurance are entitled to “early detection of skin cancer”. The aim of this is to discover early who has suspicious skin changes. This examination can be repeated every two years. Many health insurance companies also offer the examination more often and already for younger patients.

Persons insured by AOK Nordost

Men can have their first preventive colonoscopy from the age of 40 and women from the age of 45.

For men over 65 years

the health insurance companies offer abdominal aorta screening. This is a life-threatening dilatation of the abdominal aorta. A sonography is performed.
