The centre and the team
Internal Specialist Dr. Dietz in Palma de Mallorca, a facility for medical therapy, early diagnosis and prevention, is part of the "Internationales Facharztzentrum Palma" and is probably the biggest outpatient medical centre run by German doctors on the Balearic Islands.
At present, the centre comprises of 12 different medical fields with permanent representatives. In addition, the centre offers physiotherapy, antenatal and birth assistance, nutrition consultation and personal training.
The medical devices meet the latest technological standards. Colour Doppler Sonographic equipment is available for ultrasonic diagnosis of the vessels (neck, heart, abdomen, arms and legs), all examinations concerning the heart (echocardiography, stress echocardiography), and gastroenterological ultrasound programs. Of course we offer, as part of the complete examination of the heart, an exercise ECG, a 24-hour long-term blood pressure measurement and a long-term ECG. For careful endoscopic examination of the endoscopic gastro-intestinal tract we have a considerable number of video-endoscopes with automated cleaning and disinfecting functions. In addition, the capsule endoscopy is offered, in which, after careful cleansing of the bowel, only one capsule is swallowed with the size of a normal tablet. This capsule takes pictures in rapid succession of the entire gastrointestinal tract, which are then evaluated by a doctor. An accurate diagnosis of small and large intestine is possible herewith. The investigation is offered to all who feel unwell with the colonoscopy or where the colonoscopy is not possible for other reasons. It is also the latest technology to investigate the otherwise fairly inaccessible small intestine.
Our medical centre is the only one offering this technique in Mallorca.
The centre has various x-ray facilities for low-emission x-ray diagnosis as well as its own laboratory which normally provides all results within two hours. All results and charts will be electronically filed and can be provided both in paper and digital format.
The centre has a wonderful location on the Paseo Maritimo, right opposite the Marina and the ferry docks, on the 1st floor of the same building as the German and the American Consulate, and can be accessed easily.
