Safety

DURING BIRTH

WELCOME TO LIFE! HELLO WORLD!

I do my best to plan this moment, which is so important to my patients, and to let them experience the birth process with a great feeling of security. It is especially important to me to offer the mother a situation of safety in which she and her partner, midwife and doctor form a trusted team and welcome the new life into this world.

While the mother-to-be experiences the different phases of the birth process actively with the midwife and her partner, I take over the role of monitoring the birth progress, the exact medical support as well as the monitoring of the child's vital parameters.

EMPATHY AND MEDICAL EXPERTISE

In order to perfectly direct the birth process, I make careful decisions regarding the administration of oxytocic medication, pain medication or possibly also the carrying out of epidural anaesthetics if the mother-to-be asks for it.

Ultimately, in dangerous situations for both mother and child, I will actively take over the decision on surgical obstetric measures, such as cesarians or suction bells, and will carry these out for the wellbeing of mother and child.

Of course the medical monitoring of the mother after having delivered the baby as well as regular visits in hospital during the following days are part of my obstetric medical support.

Private deliveries are possible at Privatklinik Goldenes Kreuz (1090 Vienna), at Privatklinik Döbling and at Rudolfinerhaus Privatklinik (both 1190 Vienna).

I will be happy to inform you in time and in detail about the respective options with national health insurances and private insurances.

NEWS & INFOS

E-PRESCRIPTION

From July 1st 2023, medicines covered by public insurance in Austria can be sent via e-prescription (independent of ELGA).

All persons insured in Austria can pick up their medication with a health insurance e-prescription at any Austrian pharmacy - but not at web/online pharmacies! Private prescriptions cannot be sent - they have to be collected at the practice.

As of July 1st 2023, the e-card must be inserted at the practice once per quarter so that the e-prescription is activated for 90 days .

Lab tests - procedure

After we received and checked the results we proceed as follows:

1. In case of an urgent result that is subject to treatment we contact you actively and communicate the necessary steps (therapy, appointment, prescription, ...).

2. If you have not heard of us within 2 weeks, you can be assured that your results do not require any further medical clarification or treatment. In this case, even if the result deviates from the reference range, we offer you to ask within your next regular appointment.

Currently we are not able to answer your e-mails regarding that matter due to high influx of e-mails. We kindly ask you for your understanding. THANK YOU.
