Your questions about the first appointment in the Cardiopraxis

Best appointments online via our homepage that is the fastest way. In addition, online bookers receive priority appointments. However, you can also register by phone via the central telephone number 0211- 300 44 94.


Appointments can take place on the day of registration. The prerequisite is a high degree of urgency and free capacity at Praxis. The usual route for urgent appointments is to see your primary care physician. He or she will then contact us directly and explain the urgency of the appointment.

As a rule, the time until an appointment takes days to weeks. Please note that for online bookers, earlier appointments also become available at short notice.

If you have statutory health insurance, you can also come to us as a self-payer. You do not need a referral. The costs for an appointment amount to several hundred euros.

Yes, definitely. Preliminary findings, even if they relate to non-cardiology issues, are important because this allows us to get a comprehensive picture of you. Here, for example, the doctor's letters from the last 5 years and current laboratory findings are relevant.

Yes, this is particularly important. Only in this way can we often classify your symptoms as side effects of the substances mentioned and support you in a sensible therapy setting.

Last but not least, accurate information on medications and supplements contributes to your health safety.

It is best to make a list already at home. The following are important: name, concentration of the medication and frequency of use.(List in the Online Services section).


We ask for medications and dietary supplements at each visit. Therefore, it is also useful if you bring an updated list to each appointment.

Yes, this is very important. Take the time to write down the side effects of previous medications before you visit us at Praxis . If we know which medications you have not tolerated, as in the past, then we gain valuable information and can avoid side effects for you when you are prescribed new medications.

Waiting times at Praxis are usually short, so you will have little time to use your cell phone. You are welcome to surf the Internet with your cell phone using the WIFI accesses at Cardiopraxis .

Out of respect for your fellow human beings, we ask you to refrain from making telephone calls within the practice premises. If this is urgently necessary, please inform one of our assistants, who will direct you to a discreet place for a telephone call.

Please turn your cell phone on silent in the practice rooms.

Prescriptions can be sent by mail. For people with statutory insurance, we ask you to deposit an amount for postage in advance. For people with private medical insurance, this service is free of charge, i.e. it is part of the insurance benefit.
