Nothing can replace experience.

Looking beyond pure cardiology and the ability to treat a broad spectrum in medicine continues to bring me satisfaction after my many years in the profession. I am able to offer
my patients a large range of individualized treatment solutions.

Those who listen closely learn a lot – and usually the most important things.

It is an art to be able to direct a conversation with sensitivity in order to uncover the essentials.

The correct diagnosis comes before any treatment.

During the first years of my training as a specialist for internal medicine ultrasound
diagnostics were not widely available. I was able to learn from my extremely experienced
colleagues and superiors who were part of the “older generation” how to make precise
diagnoses solely by asking in-depth questions regarding the type and severity of complaints,
using ausculation, and carrying out thorough physical exams. These are the foundations of
follow-up exams using sophisticated technology.

For every treatment, the use must outweigh the risks.

Thanks to the Internet, patients are more knowledgeable than ever before. Frequently, some
are able to make a correct diagnosis themselves. However, care must be taken since the
Internet can also cause patients to lose their overview and believe themselves to be more
seriously ill than they actually are. This presents new challenges to both doctors and patients.
