Doz. Dr. Johannes Grisar


Organization Flag
Language Spoken: German, English, French


Rheumatic diseases can occur at any age and often require longer-term, "tailor-made" treatment, which is why a good doctor-patient relationship is particularly important. That's why Dr. Johannes Grisar takes the time to listen to you, carefully take your medical history, perform a detailed examination, and then make an accurate diagnosis. His goal is to work with you to design an individualized treatment plan that will lead to optimal control or remission (complete remission of symptoms) of the disease.
