Dear visitors, dear patients,
on 1.1.2020 I handed over my practice to my successor of choice, Mrs. Moni Peer, who will continue the practice with the same focus. In order to ensure a smooth transition, I will still work in the practice on a part-time basis. So you can be assured that together we will be able to offer you the best possible and appropriate therapy for your complaints.

In many cases, we can still offer you a therapy option even if others say: "You have to live with it". I invite you to visit my website and Mrs Peer's website for further information.
