We are at your service even during Corona times.

Corona Hygiene Concept

For your protection and ours, special Corona regulations apply in our medical office until further notice:

Hand disinfection, physical distancing (as far as possible) and compulsory wearing of masks for the doctor and, on request, for all patients (we have enough masks).

At the moment, only patients can be granted access to the medical office.

 

Update 24 October 2020
We are following the increasing number of corona positives with great attention.
At the moment, the following still applies: compulsory masks for everyone, distance and (not because of corona) consultation only for the patient.
Treatment in case of a positive corona test via Skype is currently being clarified.

Update 29 August 2020
For some time now, doctors and staff in our medical office have been required to wear masks.
The government council has decided to make masks compulsory for all stores in the canton of Zurich from 27.8.20.
For your and our protection, a general obligation to wear a mask will therefore also apply to patients in our medical office from 27.8.20 onwards.
We ask all patients over 12 years of age and their companions to bring their own masks.

Update 24 July 2020
The medical office is open regularly. We pay attention to the observance of the hygiene regulations and the minimum distance as far as possible.
If the waiting room is full, we ask accompanying persons to wait in front of the office. Otherwise, one accompanying person per patient is allowed. The consultation takes place without accompanying persons.
We recommend that patients bring a mask in their own interest, as the minimum distance cannot be maintained during the examination.
Patients who have contact with persons at risk, patients in self-isolation and patients returning from a risk country according to the FOPH list must wear a mask.
Patients with a proven Covid 19 infection are requested to make an appointment at the University Hospital Zurich.
Our medical office does not have the necessary protective measures.

Update 30 June 2020
Due to a renewed increase in the number of cases, the following rules apply:
1 accompanying person per patient is allowed in the waiting room, after consultation with the doctor also in the consulting room.
If the accompanying person is not related to the patient, we will note down the name and telephone number.
Patients and accompanying persons from countries and regions at risk must wear masks.
Patients and accompanying persons who have been abroad for the last 14 days must wear a mask.
Patients with cough and fever are asked to go to hospital for gynecological or pregnancy treatment, as the doctor does not have the necessary protective measures. The doctor may limit the length of stay in the consulting room of accompanying persons with risk situations to 15 minutes.
In medical office, we adhere to the distance rules whenever possible.

Update 23 June 2020
As of 23.6.20, the University Hospital of Zurich will continue to admit accompanying persons to consultation hours only for very serious reasons.
We allow 1 accompanying person per patient in the waiting room. We will note down the name and telephone number.
The doctor decides whether the accompanying person is present at the consultation.

Update 1 June 2020
According to the updated guidelines of the Federal Council, an accompanying person may enter the medical office and wait in the waiting room, giving his or her personal details (surname, first name, telephone number). The consultation normally (at least at the beginning) takes place without an accompanying person.

Update 14 May 2020
Visitors are still not permitted in Zurich University Hospital. Therefore only patients without accompanying persons are allowed to enter our medical office. We ask for your understanding.
