Psychiatrist services

Many of our psychiatric patients have been referred by their occupational physicians. The most common reasons for seeking help from a psychiatrist include anxiety and depression.  We also see some cases of bipolar disorder (manic-depression). Each patient is different, so the treatment must also be tailored to the individual's needs.

During the appointment, the patient and the psychiatrist discuss different treatment options and facilities. Some patients only need to have their medication reviewed. Early treatment is always the best option when it comes to psychiatric illnesses. The patient usually visits the psychiatrist three times. Over the course of these appointments, the psychiatrist and the patient begin the treatment, review the patient’s medication and select a treatment facility. The patient’s condition usually improves within a year, and some patients recover completely. Apart from medication, therapy often has a positive effect. If necessary, the psychiatrist can refer the patient to a psychotherapist.

Psychiatrists do not usually need to refer their patients for further tests. During the appointment, the psychiatrist will also make any necessary prescriptions, either electronically or on paper. A regular appointment takes 60 minutes.


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 received treatment or been for follow-up visits elsewhere, please bring any relevant case histories.
3.

You can pay at the reception desk after your 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. 
The normal price for a 60-minute appointment is around 180 euros. A Social Insurance Institution (Kela) reimbursement of 27 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 153 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 170 euros for the visit.
