OUR PROMISE AS YOUR PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN

The Sternmatt Practice is a solo general practitioner practice. My name is Benjamin C. Wronn. I will always be personally attending to the medical needs of my patients. That means that you’ll always have one point of contact. One person who takes responsibility: Your primary care physician. This is my promise to you!

General practice medicine is communicative medicine

The doctor as adviser, coach and contact for overcoming the patient’s health problems. The focus is on you as a person. Attentive listening and appreciation, as well as taking the patient’s subjective symptoms seriously are the foundation of a trusting patient-physician relationship, and often enough start the diagnostics off on the right track.

General practice medicine is personalised medicine

In the increasingly complex field of modern medicine with its incredible high-tech opportunities in the areas of diagnostics and therapy, it’s the job of your general practitioner to set the course to help find the best individual treatment for you together.

General practice medicine is efficient medicine

Your general practitioner knows you and your medical, and often personal history. He knows what conditions you have, the medication you need for them, and the results of your past examinations. With this knowledge, the necessary examinations and treatments can often be started directly in the practice with your personal doctor. Our practice offers a large repertoire of technical options.

General practice medicine is cooperative medicine

Occasionally, a further examination is necessary or a specialist needs to be consulted to diagnose or treat your medical condition. For such cases, the Sternmatt Practice maintains a wide network of institutes and specialists we work with which your primary physician will refer you to as needed.
