Dr Buchner believes in the philosophy of preventative medicine and aims to identify conditions before they manifest. She does this by performing a thorough general examination of her patients.

What can I expect during a routine appointment/general examination?

  • Blood pressure and pulse measurement
  • Cardiac, respiratory and abdominal examination
  • ECG (electrocardiography) – recording the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time
  • Stress ECG (a stationary bicycle is used)
  • Breast examination
  • Prostate examination (men older than 40)
  • ENT (ear, nose and throat) examination

Depending on the specific patient and circumstances, additional routine tests, e.g. 24-hour blood pressure monitoring and/or a lung function test may be required.
