We are open again, but have to work with the measures taken by the RIVM and the NVAMG associations. As a result, we only make appointments with people of whom we know with certainty that they are healthy and that they do not belong to the risk group as defined by the RIVM.
You cannot book an appointment if you belong to the group of vulnerable people as defined by the RIVM.
Vulnerable people or people of poor health are difined as aged 70 and above and/or people who have one of the following conditions:
- Abnormalities and disorders of the airways and lungs
- Chronic heart disease
- Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) (in consultation with your practitioner)
- Severe kidney disease resulting in dialysis or kidney transplant
- Reduced resistance to infections:
- Due to medication for autoimmune diseases
- After recent organ transplant
- Due to a haematological disorder (blood disease)
- Due to congenital or immune disorders that require treatment
- Because of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy for cancer
- Because of a HIV infection (in consultation with your practitioner)
You cannot book an appointment if you (or a housemate) have one of the following complaints:
- (nose) cold
- Coughing or sneezing
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
- Increased temperature (= around 38 degrees) or fever (> 38 degrees)
- Shortness of breath

You can only book an appointment after you have been free of all complaints for at least 24 hours. If you are not sure about the above mentioned complaints, you can always contact us by phone for a consultation or information.
If you do not feel comfortable in attending your appointment, we will naturally understand under the given circumstances.
