Quite often we organize for our patients trips to Germany with medical purposes, namely, for the check-up. The examination can be preventive, as well as a specialized one in the case of suspicious symptoms. Let’s talk about the check-up procedure in Germany, if you use the services of the company Booking Health.
Before organizing a trip for any kind of examination, you should book a program in one of the German clinics. In this case, it is desirable to choose the one that has the optimal price-quality ratio. You need to contact the clinic administration and wait for the invitation. It is necessary to apply for a visa. You will also get a questionnaire, which you should fill in and send back by e-mail.
Going through the check-up in Germany is much easier, if the company Booking Health organizes the trip for you. In this case we will help you to choose the clinic, arrange everything with its administration, and provide you with an interpreter and other necessary services. Also we will help with translation of medical documents as well as interpreting during your stay in Germany.
We will help you to receive a visa, book flight tickets and a hotel. Our employee will pick you up at the airport and bring you to the hotel. The next morning, he will pick you up from the hotel and take you to the clinic, where you will be examined. You will be accompanied by the interpreter, so you can communicate with the doctor and medical staff freely.
The check-up often begins the next day after arrival to Germany. It is more convenient for the patient and the examination results will be more accurate.
Our employee takes you from the hotel and delivers you to the clinic. You will meet with the doctor there. After a short conversation, you will have some laboratory analysis. Some of them should be performed strictly on an empty stomach! If necessary, other laboratory analyses are carried out. For example, you may be asked to collect the urine sample.
Then you can have breakfast and go to the instrumental diagnostics. If it is a preventive check-up, then the list of necessary examinations is prepared in advance. These are the diagnostic procedures that are included in the program. In other cases, the doctor can individually compile a list of tests, which are necessary for the purposeful diagnostics of a particular disease.
The instrumental diagnostics can take several hours all in all. Doctors begin the examination from visualizing methods – these can be an X-ray, CT or MRI scan.
Then you will proceed to the therapeutic stage of examination. You will be examined by a doctor. He will listen to your complaints and assess the objective symptoms. Then he will refer you to the additional instrumental diagnostics. Some of tests can be conducted immediately; others will be carried out the next day, if they require certain preparations. The list can include ultrasound, ECG or endoscopy, such as colonoscopy, fibrogastroduodenoscopy, cystoscopy, etc.
You will receive a consultation of the doctor according to your diagnostics’ result. He will inform you about your state of health. If there are no abnormalities in the analyzes, you can receive preventive recommendations and return home.
There are some cases when certain pathological processes are revealed during the diagnostics. In this situation an additional examination or treatment may be needed. If a drug therapy is required, a physician can prescribe a receipt. If you need an extended examination, you can do it immediately in Germany. Diagnostic procedures that are not included in the program are paid additionally.
You will receive documents in German language after finishing the diagnostic program. Our interpreter will translate them into any other language you wish. Then we’ll take you to the airport and you can go home. If you need any treatment according to the examination results, you can do it in the native country or get medical services in Germany.
Choose treatment abroad and you will for sure get the best results!
