Advice on making an appointment and your first visit
When making the appointment (by email or over the phone), clearly describe your current health issue and/or what service you would like to get.
The appointment you get will be for the earliest possible date, depending on how urgent your problem is.
Don’t forget about your medical appointment. Write down the time and date of the appointment and add a reminder on your phone. Always arrive at ZDŠ 5 minutes before your appointment. Circumstances in healthcare frequently change, so please be patient if you have to wait longer than expected.
Immediately contact your doctor if you realize that you won’t be able to come to your appointment.
Get ready before the appointment by doing the following things:
Make a list of all the questions you have for the doctor;
Make a list of all the medications and dietary supplements that you take regularly or occasionally;
Prepare all your medical documents (e.g. test results and medical reports, information about prescribed treatment);
Make a list of all your allergies, illnesses and injuries you have had in the past and any important family medical history;
If you have received any instructions before your appointment (e.g. about eating or drinking), please make sure to follow them.
