About us

Chief Physician Dr. Petra Heizmann is the Medical Director of the Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital. Prior to Dr. Heizmann taking over the management of the Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiology here, she was employed as the lead internistic Chief Resident at the German Cardiac Center in Berlin for five years, where she gained further extensive experience, including in heart and lung transplantation.

Dr. Heizmann had already acquired her specialist medical qualification as an Internist in 1996; since that time, she has continued her studies and has sat the examination in Emergency Medicine and in Internistic Intensive Care Medicine, for example. In 2008, she was approved as a specialist cardiologist. The combined competence of the specialist medical team at the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital makes high-quality treatment possible: at the same time, however, as a patient, you will enjoy a stay in a 5-star hotel. And that’s exactly the recipe for success of the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital: medicine at the most advanced state of the art and research, specialists with substantial expertise, high levels of motivation and confidence and in-patient accommodation lacking nothing. So, the patients concentrate exclusively on their health and recovery. In the course of an out-patient consultation at Dr. Petra Heizmann’s private office at the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital, you may be given a wide range of diagnostic examinations in order to assess the health of your cardiac and cardiovascular system, including long-term EKG of up to 72 hours, long-term blood pressure measurement, cardiac and abdominal organ ultrasound and digital x-ray. In order to preserve and monitor the patient's state of health regularly, the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital provides a variety of check-up packages for you, which include various diagnostic services.

Of course, numerous therapeutic service options are available and the team of the Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiology, under the direction of Dr. Heizmann, compiles individual therapeutic preventive plans on request. These also include nutrition counseling, cardio-training therapy and psychological counseling. In addition, Dr. Heizmann and the specialist medical team monitor and supervise ongoing treatments and follow-up treatment. The “Intermediate Care Ward” is also available for this, in which patients can recover their health while all values for strenuous conditions and procedures are continually monitored.
