Call to the emergency paediatrician

My five-year-old child had an accident, and I had doubts when giving him a dose of medication. With a simple call to the paediatric helpline, a doctor answered my doubts and I felt more at ease.

Any time of the day

I got up early in the morning with a severe headache, and I got scared. I took my telephone and called the 24-hour DKV Doctor. After explaining my symptoms and asking the doctor on the other side of the earpiece, I went back to bed to continue resting.

Fears before travelling

The date of our trip to various countries in Southeast Asia was approaching, and I had many questions about what type of vaccines we needed for each country.
