Ethics and Objectives

Providing medical services of high quality requires time, patience and hard work. In order to effectively treat a medical condition it is very important for a physician to spend enough time to get the patient’s medical history in detail. This should be implemented in an appropriate environment taking into account as preconditions some ethical issues like informed consent, respect and confidentiality. Medicine, even at its most technical and scientific, is an encounter between human beings, and the physician’s work of diagnosing disease, offering advice, and providing treatment is embedded in a moral context.

Each diagnostic procedure in our practice is performed with certain protocols in order to assure the patient’s safety. Each therapeutic intervention decided by the physician needs to be thoroughly explained and agreed before it is finally implemented.

This has been reported by several surveys to increase compliance. After each modification of the patient’s medical regimen it is our physician’s responsibility to ascertain the response to the applied therapy either by telephone or with an arranged meeting at the office, which of course will be free of charge.

Key Values and Beliefs
  • We care for our patients and we urge them to care for their health
  • Prevention is the easiest, most convenient, inexpensive and effective way of managing cardiovascular disease
  • Respect, trust, understanding and confidentiality are fundamental elements in the relationship between a physician and a patient
  • We respect and seriously take into account our patients beliefs and specificities
  • A therapeutic intervention should never be forced in order to be appropriately accepted
  • Therapeutic interventions are only directed by the patient’s benefit and establishment of good health
  • The diagnostic procedures in our office are performed in a pleasant environment with all safety requirements secured
  • We have a special interest in medical education and we try to be up to date with active participation in scientific conventions and meetings
  • We are willing to accept any criticism for our work in order to be able to improve
