Custom designed medical advice
You have a medical problem and need to go to the hospital. Often it does not end with one consultation and you’ll have several appointments with the attending physician. To get the most out of these discussions with your doctor, you must be well informed. The information you can find online is never precisely applicable to your situation. Moreover, your doctor often has little time available for you. In many cases there are several treatment options, but it is often not possible to fully explain all those options during one consultation. At such times you have questions about the process and the choices that need to be made. Questions that cannot wait until the next hospital appointment.
At such moments Hikos has time for you.

An appointment in 3 steps
1. Scheduling the appointment
With the simple appointment planner you choose the time and date and schedule a virtual consultation. Not sure which specialist to speak to? Contact us, we are happy to help.
2. Preparation for the consultation
We will make contact with you within 24 hours with a definitive confirmation of your appointment. We’ll also share a questionaire with you with a number of questions relating to your medical situation. This will help you in preparing for the consultation and help make clear to you exactly what you would like to know. You’ll also be requested to provide background information, so that you can get the most out of the consultation.
3. Video calling or telephone consult
You will be invited to participate in a video call. If you would rather have a telephone appointment, please let us know. The medical specialist will call you from a private (anonymous) number. Ensure that you are in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Keep pen and paper at hand, so that you can take notes. The call will last at most 20 minutes.
