In the course of the gynaecological examination, a cervical smear test (PAP smear test) is carried out in order to detect cervical carcinoma at an early stage.
This is a pain-free examination; cells are extracted from the cervix surface and the cervical canal, and are then sent to the laboratory for further examination.
Thanks to the PAP smear test, possible cell changes can be identified early, in order to determine even early stages of cervical cancer.
In the case of an abnormal result, the patient is informed immediately in order to carry out further tests for a more specified diagnosis – depending on the initial situation and the examination results (exact examination of the cervix, HPV typing etc.).
The earlier breast and cervical cancer as well as their preliminary stages are detected, the better the individual treatment possibilities and the higher the chances of complete healing.
From July 1st 2023, medicines 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.
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.
