Policy response to Corona virus pandemic

Due to the international outbreak of the Covid-19 Corona virus and with the aim of protecting your health, we have the following information.

  • As a medical practice, the Life Expert Center is not a center with an increased risk potential for contracting an infection.
  • If possible, and certainly for foreign patients, consultations will be held virtually (zoom).
  • In the current situation, consultations and treatments may continue under conditions of strict hygiene measures that will reduce the number of patients per session.
  • However, patients who show signs of a cold or feel the flu are asked not to come to the center and to cancel their appointment by telephone.
  • All patients should answer the Covid questionnaire before offering themselves.
  • For patients treated for fertility problems, nationally issued instructions are carefully followed. The following restrictions currently apply:
    • Fertility treatments will first be initiated in patients born in 1980 or older and in patients at risk of early menopause.
    • If you have been in contact with someone with a proven corona infection in the past 28 days, treatment should be postponed.
    • If symptoms occur during treatment, this will be interrupted.
    • A Covid -19 test should be performed during treatment as agreed with the physician and depending on the treatment.
    • Little is known about the risk of corona virus during pregnancy. Preventive measures to prevent infection are recommended

Carefully follow government-prescribed precautions:

  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water or use alcohol solutions
  • Avoid contact with infected persons or their immediate surroundings
  • Avoid contact with persons with breathing difficulties who sneeze and cough
  • If you sneeze or cough, cover your mouth and nose with disposable handkerchiefs, or with your elbow or hands and wash them immediately.
  • Do not use objects used by other people
