At that point we will make an appointment for the examination at the study center and discuss your questions.

The Gutenberg Health Study is an observational study. The comprehensive individual examinations are performed in a comparable (standardized) manner for all participants and are conducted without individual consultation or treatment. The results of the examination will be available for discussion with the attending (family) practitioner. They can integrate the results in the existing health history and, if necessary, initiate further examinations.
