The practice is open on Tuesday to Friday from 08.00h till 17.00h. On Mondays the practice is opened from 08.00h till 13.00h.
There is no open consultation, so you always need to make an appointment first before visiting the practice. You can do this by calling the assistant between 8.00h and 11.00h. The assistant will ask the reason of your visit, in order to assess the urgency and because of planning reasons. It is only possible to discuss one problem during an appointment, if you experience more then one kind of complaint, we kindly ask you to book a double appointment. The assistant is trained in providing medical advice concerning minor medical problems.
House calls are exclusively intended for patients who cannot travel to the practice for medical reasons. Not having transport to the practice is not a reason for a house call. House calls are made in the early afternoon, so it is important to call the assistant early in the morning when requesting a house call.
When you think you have a urinary tract infection we ask you to deliver a urine sample to the assistant before 10 am. You have to provide a fresh urine sample in a clean container, labeled with your name and date of birth. The assistant will check the urine for a possible infection and discuss the results with the doctor.
You can also plan appointments at the consultation hours of the assistant. She is trained to perform for example:
- taking blood pressure
- ear syringing
- treatment of warts
- performing PAP smears
- removal of sutures
