THE PRIVATE PRACTICE SURGERY AND ITS PHILOSOPHY

The Ophthalmology Clinic of Mrs. Riga at My Doctor Medical Centre is in operation since 2015 and is located in the central square of Larissa.

Its creation was based on the contemporary needs of providing specialized scientific services across the spectrum of Ophthalmological ailments and disorders supported by the latest medical equipment, according to the European high quality standards of Ophthalmology.

In addition, the design of the space was specifically and carefully designed to give patients a warm and pleasant environment of comfort and luxury. It should be noted that it is easily accessible for the disabled.

The basic philosophy of the practice is human-centred, aiming at preserving the health of t he eyes.

For this reason, an integrated primary health care ophthalmology unit has been set up, with modern state-of-the-art diagnostic Ophthalmological equipment to offer the patient high-quality services and in-depth coverage of the whole range of Ophthalmological disorders.

An important advantage is the common sharing and coexistence in the same office spaces with other medical specialised surgeries i.e. Pathology, Surgical Practice and Medical Laboratory sectors, was deemed necessary in order to make available services that would quickly and immediately respond to any medical care and arising health problem, where a combination of medical consultation, examinations and diagnoses would be required.
