It is essential that you take good care of yourself. So if you are concerned, or you have gynaecological issues or questions please do not hesitate and make an appointment.
New clinic, same high standards of care
From our previous practice at Medical Center Jan van Goyen, 500 meters south of the Vondelpark, we moved on June 1, 2021 to a beautiful and larger location on the WG square (Overtoombuurt) now 500 meters north of the Vondelpark.
Small-scale and personal care
We have a dedicated team: two female and one male gynecologists and skilled assistants. We see many women who prefer a small-scale clinic personal care for several reasons.
Many years of experience
Despite the experience we have, every woman has a different story and we learn everyday from our patients. We always appreciate feedback to improve our services.
