Cardiovascular health check-up

We are as old as our blood vessels are.

As a precaution of heart attack, stroke and circulatory disorders, we examine your heart and blood vessels by colour Doppler ultrasound and determine the elasticity of your blood vessels on the basis of pulse wave velocity.

Moreover, the circulation of blood through the heart is examined by means of the so-called stress echocardiography. This is an extended exercise ECG, depicting the cardiac function under stress with the help of ultrasound.

The main focus of blood examinations is the determination of risk factors for premature vascular calcification.

Raucher haben ein eindeutig erhöhtes Schlaganfall- und Herzinfarktrisiko. Weitere Folgeerkrankungen sind das sog. Raucherbein (Durchblutungsstörung) sowie Lungenerkrankungen wie Bronchitis oder auch Lungenkarzinom.

Our doctors specialised in preventive medicine have carried out over 40.000 examinations. A health check-up using modern methods is as self-evident for us as an associated consultation on health-conscious living with recommendations on nutrition, relaxation techniques, sport, exercise and stress management.

The Leading Medicine Guide Germany has included us into its renowned list as one of the five specialists in preventive medicine. This enables nationwide cooperation and assistance of medical experts from all disciplines. As different from the large check-up centres, our clinic is not a usual hospital, it is rather the one distinguished by personal atmosphere. Several studies have shown that the higher the number of diagnosticians participating in a check-up, the more inaccurate the diagnosis. Therefore, here you will always be treated by the same doctor and will not go through different departments of a large clinic.

«We treat the person, not the disease»

We have made this maxim of holistically oriented medicine the guideline of our practice clinic.

The costs of this cardiovascular health check-up are 891,78 Euros, excluding optional services.

We need about 2 hours for this cardiovascular health check-up.

If a health check-up is individually set up and only medically necessary examinations are performed, there are, in general, no difficulties with the reimbursement through private insurance companies or financial assistance offices.

The invoice will be issued by our joint practice for internal medicine on the basis of the medical fee schedule.

Due to the fact that statutory health insurance companies mostly cover only a small part of these examinations, we offer these patients our check-up programmes in the scope of our membership in the quality network Medwell.

If you have decided on a health check-up, please register about two weeks before your desired date.

You can register by post, phone or e-mail.

Our staff will be pleased to assist you further. By request, you can also take non-binding advice from our doctors in advance.
