Due to the COVID-19 regulation of the Federal Council, we will have to reduce our regular consultation hours to telephone consultations; in the clinic we will only see urgent patient concerns and emergencies that cannot be postponed. Furthermore, all “electoral interventions” must be postponed. For urgent questions, we are still available and can be reached by phone. T +41 (0)31 312 61 12 – praxis.zehetner@hirslanden.ch
