Nutrition and Dietetic Service

“Your diet plays an important role in the prevention and the treatment of diseases, particularly those of the gastrointestinal tract. I am very fond that Dietitian Ursula Wieser offers professional nutritional and dietetic advice in our practice,” Priv. Doz. Dr. Brigitte Kovanyi-Holzer

“Dietitians are experts in the field of professional dietetic advice and therapy. They are legally entitled to provide practical dietary advice to both healthy as well as diseased people. They treat patients only based on a doctor's order. Therefore you have to present a referral at your first appointment. Upon first contact by telephone or in writing it will be determined whether any additional diagnostic findings or records are required.”

Ursula Wieser, BSc, Dietitian, is working at the Herz-Jesu hospital in Vienna, as well as at the residential care homes for the elderly in Döbling and Purkersdorf.
