Internist services

Internists, i.e. specialists in internal medicine receive many patients who suffer from chronic, unexplained symptoms. Problems such as unclear abdominal or bowel symptoms, weight loss and nausea can be investigated by an internist. Other common reasons for seeking help from an internist include heart and vascular problems such as chest pain and chest tightness.

Internists also have expert knowledge on breathing problems, asthma, hormonal diseases, thyroid over- and underactivity, other metabolic disorders, abnormal lab test findings and diabetes.

Internists use a variety of tests and examinations to diagnose and treat illnesses. The most common ones are laboratory tests, endoscopic examinations and clinical stress tests (stress ECG or bicycle ergometry).

During the appointment, the internist can make referrals for any necessary further examinations or prescribe medications, either electronically or on paper.


Instructions

1.

Make an appointment online or by calling 09 7750 800. You can also make an appointment at the reception desk at any Diacor medical centre.  

2.

Please observe the following, especially if you are visiting us for the first time:

  • Bring a list of the medications you are currently using, complete with the strengths and doses.
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to any medication, please keep a list of the medication(s) in question.
  • If you are visiting because of a chronic condition, it is helpful to bring a copy of the results from any tests you have performed at home (e.g. blood pressure tests or, if you are a diabetic, PEF tracking).
  • If you have received treatment or been for follow-up visits elsewhere, please bring any relevant laboratory and X-ray results and case histories.
3.

When paying, you can also schedule appointments for any additional examinations that your doctor has prescribed for you.

Expenses

A private physician sets his or her own rates, so the prices may vary depending on how long the appointment takes, for instance. You can get information about a particular physician’s rates online or when you make an appointment. 
An appointment of less than 20 minutes normally costs around 90 euros, but a Social Insurance Institution (Kela) reimbursement of 13.50 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 76.50 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 103.50 euros for the visit. Any necessary examinations are billed separately.
