Infectious Diseases Outpatient Clinic

Information for patients

The Infectious Diseases Outpatient Clinic treats patients with demanding infectious diseases.  Patients are received by appointment. Problems related to differential diagnostics are also part of our everyday work.

These are the most common conditions we study and treat:

  • HIV
  • Prolonged fever of unknown cause
  • Borreliosis
  • Immune deficiencies
  • Infections of travelers and migrants
  • Follow-up treatment and follow-up of patients with severe infections having required hospital treatment
  • Foreign body infections

About half of our patients are referred to us by physicians at health care centers and local hospitals. The remaining half attend for check-ups after treatment at a ward or after a visit to the emergency clinic.

For the visits, an open care visit fee or a fee for serial treatment is charged. See Client Fees.

Additional information

Our aim is to make a swift assessment of the patient's condition and illness and to perform all necessary laboratory tests and imaging procedures within a minimum time frame.

The outcomes of the assessments, tests and imaging procedures are discussed personally with the patient either over phone or at a visit to the clinic. Usually the pertinent patient records are mailed to the patient's home address and to the health care center or the referring physician.

We are a university hospital and participate in clinical and nursing trials related to our medical specialty. Participation in trials is voluntary and written informed consent is required of the participant.

When you visit the clinic, please either switch off your mobile phone or to turn it on silent mode.

Facilities

The clinic is located on the same floor as most of the special outpatient clinics of the Operational Division of Medicine. The corridor of the outpatient clinic floor functions as the waiting area of the outpatient clinic.
