Dear patients

Starting April 27, 2020 the ELZA Institute will be open for routine examinations again. We have increased our capacity to be able to offer you appointments promptly. You can book your appointment at any time via the following channels:

No referral necessary

A referral will not be necessary in the next few weeks. You may take an appointment directly.

ELZA safety concept

To protect you and us, we have introduced the ELZA security concept. This includes a safety distance between patients, extended examination slots to reduce patient numbers, off-peak appointments for risk groups and protective masks for our patients. Please also understand that your relatives may not be able to join you for the appointment. Do you feel sick and have a cough? Call us before you come to see us.
