What is important to me in my work?
I must be able to make the patient “feel good” and be certain that he/she can trust me and my team. The patient must be informed in terms of his wishes, so that he understands the treatment, the progress, the results and the treatment alternatives.
With cosmetic procedures, it is important to me that in the initial consultation I learn why the patient wants the procedures and what results he or she expects.
With operations, it is important to me to provide individual care and the standard course of procedures in the most calm and relaxed atmosphere possible. If questions or problems arise after the operation, I am available for the patients.
The medical staff
I have run my practice as an independent surgeon for over 20 years. I am supported by my medical practice assistants, some of whom have been with me for years: Ms Petra Albisser, Ms Linda Christen, Ms Martha Gabriel and Ms Marlies Pally. Their aim is to provide you with information in a competent and friendly manner over the phone and to make appointments. They are also responsible for the reception desk of our offices, scheduling appointments, administration, the instruments, preparation and assistance during procedures, changing dressings, removing sutures, blood sampling, as well as managing the material stocks. The have the important duty of caring for patients, especially in major procedures or with liposuction.
The practice of Hommie Minnema, cert. physiotherapist is located within the same facility (www.minnema.ch).
