Prevenció restart: a megelőzés koronavírus járvány alatt is elsődleges!

A year has passed. That is how long that the coronavirus has been at the center of our everyday lives. It has transformed our lifestyle, our work patterns and our general habits, while it has also been the main focus for healthcare services. However, not only is COVID-19 itself dangerous, but also the effects of the pandemic. Especially if – due  to an understandable fear of the virus – we put off undergoing screening tests that can save lives through the early diagnosis of chronic and severe diseases.

In other words, now is the time to book your next screening appointment!  What kind of screening tests do we recommend and with what frequency?

It's also a good idea to have a check-up after recovering from a coronavirus infection!

Some symptoms may persist even after your initial recovery, while complications could develop that might increase the severity of any chronic diseases or conditions, as well as impact your general level of well-being. The RMC medical team is available for patients who would like to have a post-COVID examination.

Learn more about what long-term symptoms you may experience and what examinations we recommend post-infection and to whom.
