About me

Hormone and metabolic changes can occur at any age and range from mild complaints in everyday life to serious illnesses. Diabetes mellitus, thyroid disease, high cholesterol levels, obesity – people who need medical support in these specialist areas have come to the right place.

For me there is no “one size fits all” therapy, because individual care is my top priority! I treat every patient according to the latest state of science and take into account individual living conditions and preferences. In addition, I am always up to date with the latest medical and technical innovations.
