Pediatrician services

Small children in particular are most commonly brought to the pediatrician’s office because of viral respiratory tract infections and ear infections. Viruses can also cause gastroenteritis and eczema. The second most common reason is allergy-related symptoms. Smaller patients often suffer from food allergies and atopic eczema, while older children can suffer from pollen allergies. The third most common reason for visiting is functional symptoms such as abdominal pain, headache, constipation and incontinence. Growing pains can cause concern for parents too, and puberty comes with its own challenges.
 
The most common types of examinations are different kinds of lab tests, such as blood tests, throat swabs and urine tests. In some cases, X-ray or ultrasound examinations are needed. Allergies are diagnosed with skin prick tests or with blood and exposure tests.
 
The pediatricians have different fields of expertise. Ask for more information when making your appointment. For instance, if your child has a heart problem (e.g. a murmur), you can take him or her to see a child cardiologist, while an injury is best treated by a children’s surgeon. Appointments can be made directly with specialists in cases of allergies and urinary tract infections, for example. A child is usually under the care of a paediatrician until the age of 16-18.

Instructions

1.

Make an appointment online or by calling +358 9 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 your child is currently using, complete with the strengths and doses. Your child’s growth data are in many cases useful to us. We may also need information about any medication allergies and treatment received elsewhere.
  • If your child has ever had an allergic reaction to any medication, please keep a list of the medication(s) in question. 
  • If your child has received treatment for the same condition or been for follow-up visits elsewhere, please bring any relevant laboratory and X-ray results and case histories.
3.

If your child has insurance, please bring the insurance information (company name and insurance number). You can pay at the reception desk after your child’s visit.

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 80 €, but a Social Insurance Institution reimbursement of 13,50 € is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 66,50 € plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17,50 €. In this example, the customer therefore pays 84 € for the visit. Any necessary examinations are billed separately.
