Remote Appointments at Docrates Cancer Center
The hospital is open normally – we also offer remote appointments to all our patients.
Despite the corona virus pandemic, our hospital is open normally. An oncologist’s appointment will be organized for you without delay, also remotely. Further diagnostics as well as treatments will be organized at our hospital in Helsinki.
During the epidemic, we recommend remote appointments to all our patients. We suggest that also existing appointments will be carried out remotely. This can be done by contacting our staff, either your own care team or our Booking, +358 10 773 2010. The remote appointments will be carried out via telephone or Kaiku Health video appointment.
