Please note, this is a private health care office for neurology and clinical neurophysiology. The consultation fees are covered by private health insurance. Statutory health insurance funds will usually not cover the costs, as I do not have a so-called “Kassenzulassung” (statutory health insurance accreditation). If privately insured, you pay doctor’s fees and medicine costs and send receipts to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you are covered under national public health scheme you are of course welcome to use our services. In this case, you will get a bill for the consultation. (see below: cost transparency). Many direct paying clients come for a second opinion in order to receive a valid neurological examination and counselling on the necessity of an operation,
The main advantage of operating a private practice is, that I can decide on the time needed for consultation and examination without time restraints. This way, I can plan more time for examinations. Individualized counseling and especially a thorough high-quality examination by NCS and EMG and nerve sonography would not be possible for me within the restraints of statutory health insurance. Especially if important therapy decisions have to be made, I prefer relying on a thorough and informative (which means oftentimes: time-consuming) examination. I always work with prior appointment. This helps to avoid unnecessary waiting times. Please come on time to your scheduled appointment and plan enough time for the examination (examination time usually 60min).
Medical doctors in Germany are not free to define prices for medical consultation. Billing has to be conducted according to the current Medical Fee Schedule (so called GOÄ) for physicians. In the Medical Fee Schedule (so called GOÄ), there are obligatory predefined fees for each medical examination and treatment. These predefined fees are exactly the same throughout Germany.

The cost of your consultation will vary on the complexity of your individual case, the examinations needed etc. If you are paying on your own account, we can provide you with a prognosis on treatment costs. If you wish, we can agree on an upper cost limit beforehand. This means the costs will be fully transparent to you in advance. Please ask.
