Coronavirus: Our protective measures

Outpatient Center for Internal Medicine

The Outpatient Center for Internal Medicine offers a wide spectrum of diagnostic services and treatments in the field of internal medicine. We provide interdisciplinary management of diagnostic procedures by organizing any further tests you require in other specialist outpatient departments within the hospital.

  • Diagnosis and treatment of metabolic and endocrine disorders (e.g. diabetes, hormonal imbalances, osteoporosis, thyroid disease)
  • Diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases
  • Preventive medicine/health checks

Specialist services

Our specialist outpatient center offers the following endoscopic examinations:

  • Gastroscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Proctoscopy (anal endoscopy)

Evidence of coronavirus status for outpatient endoscopy

For outpatient endoscopy appointments, a negative PCR test is required.

If the PCR test has been carried out outside the hospital, you have to bring along the valid test certificate of an approved provider (e.g. testing center, laboratory, pharmacy; “Gargle with Us!” (“Alles gurgelt”), with photographic confirmation of identity showing your passport, ID card or Austrian e-card). The time of sampling must not be more than 48 hours ago before the planned examination.

We hope you understand that without a negative PCR test result the examination appointment at Döbling Outpatient Center will NOT proceed. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Recovered persons are not required to carry out a PCR test for a period of two months after passed infection. Please bring evidence of your recent COVID infection or recovery to your admission.

Please note: Döbling Private Hospital offers PCR tests as a private service for people WITHOUT symptoms.
