Introduction

I have more than ten years of experience. Since my graduation, I have been working at the Department of Cardiology at the Hungarian Army Medical Center which works on a three-stage basis. Here I acquired experience in acute and chronic cardiological disorders diagnostics and complex treatment. My cardiological interest is wide, but in my scientific activity I mainly carry out research in the areas of heart failure and medicinal and instrumental treatment.
My main profile at Buda Health Center is cardiological non-invasive diagnostical treatments (identification of heart diseases,– diagnostics and echocardiographical – heart ultrasound – examinations). I treat patients with heart or vascular system problems.

Patient safety protocol

We consider the safety of our patients and our professionals to be of the utmost importance, therefore, in accordance with the current regulations in force, we implement several protective measures against COVID-19 in our Institute, which you can read about in detail HERE.

A negative PCR test is required for oral and other body cavity examinations or interventions if the patient had a positive PCR test in the last 3 weeks prior to the test.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
At the above telephone number - on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. - our colleagues only book appointments for coronavirus testing.
