Physiatrist services

A physiatrist mostly examines and treats sufferers of various musculoskeletal disorders, and typically cooperates with other specialists such as neurologists, orthopedists or rheumatologists. Physiatrists have expert knowledge in the fields of rehabilitation planning, work capacity assessment and professional rehabilitation evaluation. 
 
Physiatric patients typically suffer from various musculoskeletal disorders, particularly in the back, neck and upper limbs. The problems can affect joints as well as soft tissue, and the patient may suffer from pain. The primary goal of the treatment is to diagnose the cause of the problem, so that a suitable rehabilitation plan, which may include different forms of therapy, can be designed. Our physiatrists often cooperate with other experts such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
 
The physiatrist can refer the patient for blood tests, X-ray examinations or MRI scans. You will get your test results during your following appointment or by phone.

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.

If you have insurance that might cover the treatment, please bring your insurance information (company name and insurance number) to your appointment.

3.

 

Please bring any relevant test results, especially if you have had e.g. X-rays taken somewhere other than at Diacor.

4.

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

Expenses

A private physician sets his or her own rates, so the prices may vary depending on the amount of time the appointment takes, for instance. You can get information about a particular physician’s rates online or when you make an appointment. 
A physiatrist appointment of less than 60 minutes normally costs around 210 euros, but a medical insurance reimbursement of 31.50 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 178.50 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 16 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 194.50 euros for the visit. Any necessary examinations are billed separately. Telephone appointments are billed according to duration.
