F.A.Q.                                           (return to F.A.Q. index)
What happens if I am a new patient?

You may have referred yourself, have been referred by another specialist, or by Medical Insurance.

I'll discuss your problem and ask about your medical history. A thorough examination will then follow.

I may request examinations and tests to assist and support my diagnosis.

X-rays, blood / urine analysis, ultrasonography, MRI, can all be performed with no delay in the same building next to my Orthopedic clinic.

If you have previous examinations and tests related to your current condition, please bring those along to the consultation. Also bring any copies of letters from other doctors or recent medication. It will help me to help you.

I'll discuss with you the results of your examinations and I'll recommend the proper treatment.

Some conditions may be faced immediately by conservative or surgical treatment.

In case you need surgery requiring general anaesthesia, we arrange routine or urgent transfer by quick boat, state or private air ambulance to Athens, or to your preferred destination (subject to stable medical condition). In special cases a patient can be escorted.

Otherwise, depending on the results of your examinations, the nature of the Orthopedic problem and your holiday plan, I will discharge you from my clinic, refer you on to another health professional, book you for surgery, or apply plaster/brace.

If follow-up consultation or further consultations are required, I'll indicate this and the staff will let you know the date and time of your next appointment.
