Preparation for intervention

Preparation for intervention

What should we do before an examination? How should we prepare for the examination?

They bring their previous medical findings with them to the examination. All previous medical documentation and a list of medications taken are also required, and the doctor must be informed of known drug sensitivities. In view of the expected examinations, it is worth choosing clothing that makes dressing easier.

How is the examination carried out?

The specialist first questions the patient about his medical history and reviews his previous findings. Then the physical examination follows, and in light of this, you can order further tests. The therapeutic plan is drawn up based on these, and the specialist constantly monitors the treatment. If necessary, we will provide you with a prescription also supported by the OEP. In addition to full documentation, if necessary, we also help our patients with suggestions for diet and lifestyle changes.

Sign in for the test

Before outpatient surgeries, a specialist examination is required, which is performed by doctors operating at the Duna Medical Center. You don't need a referral to us: we accept patients from anywhere, our staff take calls from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Upon check-in, our staff member will also provide you with general information about the examination, surgery and costs. The conversation with our colleague is recorded for quality assurance reasons.

Surgery appointment and filling in the consent form

The surgeon performing the operation will ask you for permission to perform a specific treatment or test. You will be asked to sign a consent form stating that you agree to the treatment and understand its benefits, risks and possible alternatives. If you do not understand something, or if you need more time to think about a decision, please let your care staff know. Remember, it's your decision! You can change your mind at any time, even after you have signed the consent form. Let your staff know immediately if you've changed your mind. Your wish will be respected.
