No Gastroentologie appointment for the next months

Hi folks,

Is that it? Am I out of luck? Should I keep up with this pain for months until the nearest appointment?
Any help is really appreciated.

Ask your GP for a note classifying it as urgent and call the "Terminservicestelle" at 116117 (nationwide number). They will arrange for an appointment within 1 month. If they can't you can go to a private doctor or hospital and public insurance will have to pay.

Keep looking at the website frequently, oftentimes there are cancellations, timeslots are released, and you can grab an appointment sooner.

How about going old school and use a telephone?

 

Explaining your situation will lead to a quicker appointment if it is urgent.

Not acceptable when one is in pain.

In which case it´s not an urgent case but an emergency.
