The Hikos medical specialists can help you navigate the complex Dutch healthcare system. They offer guidance and extra explanation for your visits to your general practitioner or other medical specialists. They are available daily to think along with you outside the consultation room.
During a 20 minute virtual appointment (video call) you can discuss all your questions with the right specialist. This way you are better prepared for your next appointment with your own specialist or general practitioner. You feel more confident, have more control and are better able to make informed decisions about your medical choices.
The following specialties are currently part of the Hikos network:
- Anesthesiology, Intensive Care, Pain care
- Ear, nose and throat surgery
- Oral and maxillofacial surgery
- Plastic surgery
For many conditions, there are specific medical specialists or hospitals that may be more relevant for you. You would like to be treated where there is a lot of knowledge and experience. We work with you to find the best specialist for patients in your situation.
After you meet with your own doctor, you may still have questions, or perhaps you have received a diagnosis for which there are several treatment options. Our specialists can spar with you and explain the pros and cons of various treatment courses, helping you to more actively participate in decisions about your treatment.
"I recommend Hikos to everyone! It was great to be able to ask someone all my questions. Very accessible and professional. I have now really made progress and I know what I can discuss with the specialist in order to make the right choice."
“Making the appointment went smoothly and was possible in the short term. I was able to consult with a pleasant and compassionate doctor. She helped me think about where I can best go with a very specific problem. That gave me the confidence that I was in the right place for my medical needs."
"After months of complaints and following a conservative treatment that did not produce the desired result, I searched the internet for information. What I encountered was often incomplete or contradictory information. That is why I was so happy with an insightful conversation with the [Hikos] medical specialist about the pros and cons of treatment with medicines or surgery. Efficient and pleasant."
“After speaking with the doctor for 10 minutes and sending a photo, we could then enjoy the weekend with some peace of mind. If I'd had to wait for my appointment in the hospital, another 6 weeks would have gone by."
“Now I know which doctors specialize in my very specific problem. So we were immediately in the right place."
