    Here you find information about coronavirus, please be sure to read before sending us questions about COVID:


    Here you find doctors and institutes we work with.

    Medications we use are found on this site.

    To see medications available in Portugal. A very good site is found here. Infarmed provides an official site to look for available medications, used to be terrible but maybe improved in 2022.

    Ever since the pandemic started in February 2020 we are overwhelmed with work but we try our best even if we are getting between 60 and 80 emails per day. The special situation has forced us, to not being able to fulfill requests for insurances and medical reports. We kindly request you to ask for those only if they are strictly necessary. In the case of insurances with questions which are just made to keep the people working and avoid having to refund, we offer you to come one day at the end of the visits of the day and the doctor will put on your bill whatever you want him to put in hand writing, this is the most fast forward way to deal with those requests and will have no cost but must be organized with the reception of the office by making an appointment on the phone specifying the aim of your visit. If the insurance insists on extensive written medical reports this will have a cost, which will have to be paid in advance providing in one email all the information needed for the report. Depending on the amount of work, we might charge an amount between 40 and €80 and the report will be written once we have received the payment. Kindly take notice that the doctor has to do this in his free time and has a long to do list so it might take up to eight weeks.

    Thank you very much for your understanding.

    Be well!
