Dear Patients,

Welcome to my private cardiology Practice on the Klosterstern. As a cardiologist and internist, I stand for a holistic medical approach, combined with modern technology. Through my many years of work and experience in different internistic fields and cardiology at the University Hospital Hamburg Eppendorf, I work with the utmost internal and cardiological competence. In my practice at the Klosterstern, I offer detailed health advice on prevention or performance diagnosis, based on the discussion of your individual health resources and weaknesses.
I guide you to your health goals by all necessary means, in cooperation with in house nutrition consultants, personal trainer or psychotherapists, as well as in close interdisciplinary exchange with other necessary experts or specialists. The foundation is an extensive cardiovascular and internal diagnosis supported by first-class equipment and an extensive laboratory evaluation. Of course, differential diagnosis also belongs to the focus of my practice in the case of existing illness in the case that a second opinion is needed.

It is Time to Get Well – Welcome!

I am complimented by a team, directly in house, of psychotherapists, nutrition consultants and various trainers to offer an uncomplicated way to provide an interdisciplinary and comprehensive treatment framework.

My goal is the promotion and maintenance of health. Building up the body with the objective of increasing your vitality. This vitality and the growing awareness of your body will give you pleasure. Through my many years of work at the University Clinic Hamburg, Eppendorf as both an internist and cardiologist, I have gained a very good connection to the institution and to many established specialists, which I can specifically call on in an unbureaucratic, fast and constructive way.
