Our practice for neurology and psychiatry is located at the heart of Neukölln in Berlin. Some call it the border between north and south Neukölln. Others call us ”the practice nearby Grenzallee“, although the exact address is Karl-Marx-Straße 272, 12057 Berlin (see map). Here we treat all neurological and psychiatric diseases. Only psychotherapy is not offered. [get in contact]

The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, currently in the Delta but soon in the Omicron variant, is spreading again in Neukölln despite ongoing vaccinations. Therefore, the protective measures in our practice must remain in place in order to keep protecting each other: Wash hands, Cover face, Make space. We recommend vaccination for almost all our patients. There are special rules regarding the risk of infection and vaccination for certain autoimmune diseases and immunotherapies. [learn more here]

Medical Procedures

In neurology and psychiatry, technical examinations may be neccesary, included EEG, evoked potentials (SEP, VEP, AEP), neuronography, myography, sonography and lumbar puncture. We carry out all of them in our practice. [learn more here]

Electronic patient file and telematics infrastructure

The test phase of the so-called "electronic patient record" (ePA) started on 1st January 2021. It follows fundamental changes in the processing of medical data in Germany. Many of the innovations seem sensible to us, but we currently advise against the ePA. [we explain why here]
