We offer you the following diagnostic measures:
- Exercise ECG (ergometry)
- Laboratory tests
- Long-term blood pressure measurement
- Lung function test
- 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.
Our practice offers family doctor-centred care for all patients with statutory health insurance. (HzV)
