We strive to provide the following service:
- competent and friendly service by our team
- short waiting times (exceptions are unfortunately also possible with us)
- a doctor’s letter is usually sent to the patient and the doctor after 7-10 days
- in case of significant laboratory changes, the patient is contacted by telephone on the same day as the values are transmitted
- online appointment allocation and appointment reminder via SMS
As an elective doctor (Wahlarzt), I do not have any contracts with health insurance companies, which means that you have to pay for the incurred costs yourself. You can submit the fee invoice afterwards and, depending on your health insurance, you will be reimbursed for a usually small portion. Private insurances often cover the remaining costs.
Our rates are as follows:
Visit between €190 and €250.- depending on the effort and the question and complexity of the doctor’s letter. Annual thyroid check-up (€150.-), blood sampling check-up (€70.-), fine needle biopsy of the thyroid gland (€90.-), osteoporosis visit incl. bone density measurement (€250.-; incl. thyroid gland €290.-), osteoporosis consultation (bone density measurement was performed outside; €200.-), ethanol ablation of cystic thyroid nodule (€250.-).
Payment can be made in cash, by ATM card or by bank transfer.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
An RFA is associated with costs of €2300 to €2800. The expensive disposable instruments play a major role. A higher amount covers additional time or technical efforts compared to a standard procedure. In about 85-90% of patients a single treatment is sufficient in the long term. In the case of large nodule formations, the patient would already be informed of a second possible RFA in the future.
In Styria and Lower Austria, the ÖGK currently pays around €1300 for an RFA if the indication is present. Other health insurances refund either nothing or an amount up to approx. € 350. Often there is already an external recommendation for surgery by a specialist. This can be helpful in the application process. There is a “supplement to the fee note” for your insurance, which you will receive from us. It is a good idea to go to the insurance company with this supplemental sheet and the doctor’s letters even before the RFA. In doing so, you should point out the general advantages as well as the more cost-effective RFA.
Supplementary insurances refund from 0% to the full amount depending on the exact contract and the amount reimbursed by the statutory health insurance.
