Practice notice

Dear patients of the Center for Bariatric Surgery:

Due to the updated COVID-19 regulation of the Federal Council, we are now allowed to start planning our office hours again. We are now there for you every day at the usual times. We would like to ask you to consider the following points regarding your planned consultation / annual check:

  • We would like to ask you to come to our consultations alone, without accompaniment
  • The best thing to do is to postpone or cancel appointments by phone or email; avoid direct visits to the practice
  • Please come to the consultations on time. If you arrive early, you will be redirected from the reception to an external waiting room – please follow the instructions regarding placement in one of our waiting areas
