NEWS FROM OUR PRACTICE
15 November - Covid 19 Update
The Austrian government has communicated a further tightening of the measures, which will be implemented from November 17, 2020. There are all-day exit restrictions, but to be able to leave your apartment or house for special reasons. A visit to the doctor is explicitly such a reason.
We are therefore happy to be there for you in our practice. If you do not want to keep your appointment as a result of the lock down, it is essential that you cancel your appointment in good time. Only in this way can we optimally keep the capacities of our practice ready for our patients.
At this point, as usual, we would like to point out that we adhere to the highest hygiene standards on our part, including very regular surface cleaning. We also ask you not to come to our practice if you have relevant symptoms of illness (such as fever, dry cough, tiredness) or if you have had risk contact with a person who is proven to be infected or who is currently being tested. In these cases we ask you to cancel your appointment at short notice.
In addition, here is the reference to our telemedical consultation: Dr. Ferenci offers a telemedical consultation via video call on Mondays and Wednesdays. You can find more information here. If you do not want to or should not leave your home, you can discuss your dermatological problems such as acne, eczema, hair loss and other visually recognizable topics with us or have treatments that have already taken place checked. For new patients, it is necessary to sign and upload a data protection agreement sent by appointment.
We are looking forward to your visit.

27 September - Alex² Allergy
We use the most modern technology to identify your allergies. The Allergy Explorer (ALEX2) can identify allergen-specific IgE antibodies against all relevant allergen sources (exception: drugs, e.g. penicillin). Whether it is animal fur, yeast and mold, insecticides, latex, mites, food or pollen - ALEX2 helps to find the allergy trigger. ALEX2 test is also loaded with many molecular allergens. These enable a better understanding of your allergy in the case of cross-reactions and food that is prone to risk for allergic reactions (e.g. peanuts) - this helps the doctor to suggest tailored diet recommendations (e.g. raw apples are not tolerated, whereas applepie do not cause any harm). With the help of molecular allergy diagnostics, allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) can also be used in a more targeted manner. ALEX2 is equipped with almost 300 allergens.
More information can be found here.
21 September - COVID-19 Update
we are closely monitoring the worsening situation in this pandemic.

In the event of a positive test by one of our patients or employees, all potentially endangered patients will be contacted immediately using contact tracing.
Likewise, we ask you, valued patients, to refrain from visiting the practice if you have relevant symptoms of illness (such as fever, dry cough, tiredness) or if you have had risk contact with a person who is proven to be infected or who is currently being tested. In these cases we ask you to cancel your appointment at short notice.

January 20, 2020 - Ball season starts
Get ready for the upcoming glamorous ball season with a fresh new look
When the winter seems endless and you are feeling tired, it is common to observe pale and lifeless skin. If that sounds familiar, it is time to look fresher and improve your skin's radiance. In addition, the winter season is perfect for micro needling, mesotherapy and peeling because of the lack of sun. Laser treatments and the removal of troublesome skin changes are also particularly good at this time of the year because the treated areas do not have to be protected from the sun. Make an appointment directly or give us a call if you have any questions.

August 5, 2019 - Artificial Intelligence

August 3, 2019 - Freizet Kurier
Today I share with you an exciting article on skin and genetics from the Freizeit Kurier magazine. This topic is very important to me.

I am confident that in the future we will be able to offer more tailor-made and targeted preventive work.

May 22, 2019 - Skin cancer prevention article
Thank you Dr Bisschoff. The medicine you prescribed worked like a bom! I appreciate the time you took to descibe my illness in simple terms and the lifestyle changes I need to make to manage my condition. Many thanks!Yelp: Christiaan B.
I traveled from London to see Dr. Johannes Bisschof for wrinkle treatment. I was extremely impressed with my wrinkle treatments. He has a very 'natural look' approach and after everyone asked me why I look younger and more relaxed I will definitely have it done again. I have also asked him advice on my skin texture and he suggested 2 creams and my skin has never looked this good. I feel 10 years younger. I can highly recommend him!Yelp: Liezel M.
Dr Bisschoff used a laser to treat my skin scars. I was happy with the package that he offered. He is knowledgeable, friendly and I loved the end result.Google: Cecile du Toit
Dr. Bisschoff was absolutely wonderful and a great help. He took time to make sure I was comfortable, spoke incredible English, and explained everything in a careful and detailed manner. Thanks to his help, my skin condition was solved! I would recommend him to anyone.
Best dermatologist in Vienna. Really cares about his patient. He is a very good listener. He spent as much time as its needed and he doesn't rush patient. His aim is actually to help people not only earn money (like some of doctors tend to do). On the top of all of that he is really positive person and he explains everything in the proper manner.
Excellent doctor, extremely attentive! One of the best medical experiences I had.
