Short Waiting time indication

We will reserve extra time for your first appointment so that, after the intake interview, the required examination can be performed, and the treatment plan can be discussed with you. Treatments will be provided as soon as possible and we will make every effort to ensure that the results of the examination (pathology) will be communicated to you and your GP as soon as possible.

The centre has a treatment room for minor surgery that can be performed either with or without the use of local anaesthesia. After your visit, we will inform your GP about our findings and the relevant therapy. If you wish to receive a copy of that letter, please contact your treating physician to arrange for that

Your first appointment

If you have been referred, you should bring a referral note from your GP, your ID and your health insurance card with you when you visit our clinic for the first time. We are legally obliged to check these documents. We would also appreciate it if you bring a list with you of the medication you are taking. If you have no referral from your GP, for example, because you want a gynaecological check-up, you do not need to bring the abovementioned documents with you.

Please Note! The Wetering Medical Centre has not concluded contracts with all health insurers for the invoicing of proctological treatments. This means that you will be sent an invoice which you should forward to your health insurer. If the insurer does not cover all the costs, please contact us.
