Diagnosing disease and treatment
The doctors at Confido diagnose and treat various diseases. Our general practitioners deal with people of all ages and diagnose, treat and monitor a wide spectrum of health issues, as is common in family health centres. Specialists in specific fields are consulted as necessary. You can always turn to our specialists directly without a referral. Where required, our doctors will assign analyses and refer you for further tests, put together a treatment plan and give recommendations on how to maintain good health. In less severe cases, our nurses are also able to help and advise you on health issues.
Analyses and testing
At Confido, you can have a wide range of analyses and tests to prevent, diagnose and monitor disease. You will usually be referred for analyses and tests by our doctors or nurses. Various blood analysis packages are available without a referral. We perform blood, urine as well as stool tests. We offer all common X-ray imaging, ultrasound examinations and magnetic resonance imaging services. We perform, among other things, ECG, spirometry, Holter monitoring, sleep analysis, Dermtesting for mole examination and several other specific tests. We recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our doctors or nurses in addition to having analyses and tests. They will help interpret the results and give recommendations on how to stay in good health. At Confido, you have quick and easy access to analyses and tests.
Confido also performs many diagnostic tests for family health centres where the costs are covered by the testing fund and the pricing is based on the price list of the Estonian Health Insurance Fund. This requires a referral by a general practitioner.
At Confido, you can apply for various medical certificates. We perform medical examinations to issue health certificates for motor vehicle drivers or for weapons permits. You can undergo any necessary analyses and tests for a certificate on infectious diseases. The latter is needed, for example, for handling foodstuffs, teaching or working in healthcare. If necessary, we also issue certificates for insurance or other substantiated purposes.
For your medical examination, please bring an identity document, glasses, contact lenses and any other aids (e.g. hearing aids or prosthesis). If, during your health examination, we discover any health issues that might stop you from getting a health certificate, we will refer you to a specialist or for further testing (for example, to the ophthalmologist or for sleep analysis). Only after these appointments can we issue a health certificate. You will be required to pay for the service even if the doctor decides not to issue a certificate.
Issuing repeat prescriptions
Renewing a prescription for the first time in Confido requires a consultation from one of our doctors and the price of this service is based on the price list of that doctor. Our doctor makes a decision about prescription renewal based on the consultation.
Please notify us of your wish to extend your prescription for continuous treatment prescribed at Confido 1-2 weeks before the medication runs out by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or calling 1330. This will ensure that the request to extend the prescription reaches your doctor in time. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that the prescription will be extended before the medication runs out.
At Confido, we do not usually renew the following medications: benzodiazepines and benzodiazepine-like drugs (i.e. Z-drugs), opioids, methylphenidate, phenobarbital, other narcotic and psychotropic drugs.
Renewal of benzodiazepines can be done by our doctor if the patient can provide our doctor with a written or electronic excerpt from their medical history as written by their own regular doctor, indicating the need and dosage of the medication in question. There also needs to be a well-justified reason why the patient's own regular doctor cannot renew the medication in question. In such cases, our doctor may decide to renew the smallest amount possible of the medication and ask the patient to contact their regular doctor or another specialist to plan further treatment.
In addition to medicine, your personal choices and the control you assert over your life also have an impact on your health and welfare. At Confido, we put emphasis on prevention and believe that people can do a lot to prevent health concerns. We will support you in these endeavours and offer a range of opportunities.
You can undergo a variety of procedures with our doctors and nurses to help maintain good health and prevent disease. A medical examination is carried out to gain a comprehensive overview of your health. Within the medical examination, the different organ systems of your body will be assessed. The main medical examination package includes a wide selection of blood analyses and a consultation with a nurse and a general practitioner. You can pick which particular areas you want to focus on with the medical examination.
Our doctors and specialists will give you personalised recommendations for maintaining good health based on your individual and hereditary risk factors, test results, lifestyle and personal goals. We recommend medical examinations for all ages.
Minor surgeries and procedures
At Confido, we perform a variety of procedures and minor surgeries. Where necessary, our surgeons remove any moles and other skin formations that give rise to suspicion upon examination; they also remove ingrown toenails and perform joint injections. Our surgeons perform a variety of procedures such as vasectomy, anaesthesia and ear-nose-throat surgery. Confido's gynaecologists perform various gynaecological tests and place hormonal contraceptives. Confido's neurologists perform Botox injections provided that they are medically indicated, e.g. for treating severe cases of chronic migraines. Confido's nurses perform ear flushing and tend to wounds.
A complete overview of the procedures performed at Confido can be found in the respective subsection and the procedures related to each speciality are additionally listed under the subsections dedicated to those specialities. Procedures are usually performed based on a referral from our doctors or nurses but procedures may also be recommended by specialists who do not work for Confido.
With travel, there are serious health risks involved due to climate change, unfamiliar foods or the spread of infectious diseases. During a travel consultation, we will discuss all of the details of your trip and the health risks in those areas. In accordance with these details, we will compose a personal vaccination programme and give recommendations on the measures of disease prevention and the hygiene rules to follow and the medications and other resources to take with you to protect yourself from illness. A travel advisor will also take into consideration the needs of the children who may be travelling with you.
We will issue an internationally valid Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis stating that vaccination against yellow fever has been done, which is required by many countries before entering. With travel vaccinations, a travel consultation by Confido is always included.
