6: How do I make an appointment and see which appointments are still available?

Click here (http://spectrummed.be/en/appointment/) and choose your appointment type (regular consultation, telephone consultation or video consultation). You will then immediately see which appointments are still available today and you can click on the free hour to book them. Make sure you choose the right day and the right location! May we ask you to book your appointments as much as possible yourself during the corona crisis? This way we can relieve the secretariat a little.

 

7: I need a prescription for medication, do I need to come for consultation?

During the Covid-crisis we exceptionally can prescribe medication at a distance. It is best to always book a consultation by telephone. This way we are sure that no medication errors occur.

 

8: I have not yet received the results of my blood test, what should I do?

We work with the laboratory  LMO at Groot-Bijgaarden. You will receive your results via their iPatient platform where you’ll have to log in with your national registry number. Some tests take longer to perform. Your doctor will also sometimes request additional tests if an abnormal value is found. As a result, the results may be somewhat delayed. Haven’t you heard from us after a week? Call us during the hour and we will inform you of the results.
