A sudden onset of neurological incidence might indicate a neurological emergency. Therefore we strongly recommend visiting the emergency room of the nearest hospital.

Phone number: 144

Only in a hospital the neccessary diagnostics – especially concerning imaging – are available.

Do not lose time, because: „Time is brain!“

Another recommendation: Always take a list with yourself with essential medical information:
–  Previous diseases
–  Medication
–  Allergies

It helps saving time!

Private Practice – Ordination Apexmed

Team of the neurology practice Salzburg


Apexmed is a “Wahlarzt-Ordination” (private practice) for neurology in Salzburg.

Being a private practice means that we do not have direct contracts with health insurance companies. Accordingly, you are asked to pay your medical fees directly to us and then submit our bill to your health insurance for refunding.

Please note that a general health insurance usually does not refund 100% of the private practice fees.
Private specialists want to dedicate more time to their patients than most physicians are able to. Thus, their extra services are slightly more expensive.

I say thank you to Petra Dollmann (middle), who helped to raise the private practice in the first nearly 7 years. I wish you all the best.

Information for patients

A sudden onset of neurological incidence might indicate a neurological emergency. Therefore, we strongly recommend visiting the emergency room of the nearest hospital immediately.

Consider us as your advisor regarding your personal health with special attention to psychological and social interactions.
“Advisor” means: Your health and well-being is as much our goal as it is yours
and – as it is your body – you have to take the active role in implementing treatment and therapy.

To do so, it always helps to have information on the main functions of your body.
We would be happy to inform you personally on relevant topics and can recommend adequate literature.

Additionally, you have the possibility to join our free information events, which will cover various neurological topics.

In addition, our information videos on various symptoms and diagnoses in our MEDIA-area will give you a first impression from the comfort of your own home.


Who doesn’t know: MO-vember is a compound word from “Moustache” and “November”.

The campaign comes from Australia, is very successful worldwide and aims to draw attention to the topic of “health care” by growing a mustache in November. When it was founded in Adelaide in 1999, the specific goal was to encourage older men to take precautionary measures to prevent prostate cancer.

Personally, I’ve been growing a Mustache every November since 2012, but the topics vary every year. So it is more interesting and women also have a greater share in the action – as experience shows that “growing a beard” is usually more difficult for them than it is for us men.

There is also an explanatory video … each with a suitable “Movember lecture” … and the voluntary opportunity to donate to a good cause.
