Specialized telephone consultation
Mater Olbia Hospital, during this Health Emergency period, would like to take care of the surrounding communities’ needs and has instituted a SPECIALIZED TELEPHONE CONSULTATION service.
The service is available after making an appointment by phone, by contacting the CUP (Appointment Call Center) 0789 1988 898 and is directed at anyone who needs specialized medical consultation. Patients who have made an appointment will be personally called back by the specialist indicated in the scheduled time slot. In order to simplify the operators’ job, patients are kindly asked, before making the call to the CUP, to have ready their healthcare card and any necessary medical documentation useful for the consultation with the specialist. It should be noted that the telephone conversation does not replace the outpatient medical visit, but its objective is to respond to the community’s health needs in this period of health emergency.
List of available services:
- Bariatric surgery
- Endocrine surgery
- General surgery
For orthopedic consultations, we provide some guidelines in order to simplify the consultation and to allow as many people as possible to utilize the service:
- indicate the area of the problem: the consultation should preferably deal with just one body area (hip, knee, shoulder, foot…);
- indicate symptoms (pain, swelling, color, limited joint mobility, joint instability, sensory deficits, motor deficits);
- have on hand reports of diagnostic tests already done.
A medical prescription is not necessary.
