How Works Aventino Medical Group
Welcome to Our Practice
The Aventino Medical Group includes health care practitioners from several countries, all licensed in Italy and most with international training, who have been collaborating in Rome for as long as 36 years. We take pride in offering unique high-level personalized care based on professional competence, humanity, and the support provided by our superb front desk staff. Plus free wi-fi while you're waiting...
Specialist visits require appointments but if it is urgent, we will do our best to get you an appointment the same day.
While this may mean that you might occasionally have to wait for your doctor who may have had to take an urgent appointment, we believe this service is of benefit to all our patients.
If you have to cancel an appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance so another patient can use the space.
From our long experience, we always prefer to make appointments by phone rather than by email.
Availability of the specialists:
When one of us is not reachable, our secretaries will be able to find you a valid substitute, whether or not he or she is a member of the Aventino Medical Group.
In case you should need a specialist who is not a member of our group, do not hesitate to ask our advice. One of us will always be available to indicate a specialist best suited to your needs, based on our experience.
For routine calls to the office, try to avoid the peak telephone hours of 11:00 am - 1:00 pm and 3:00 - 6:00 pm.
When we are busy with a patient, the secretaries will take your message. We will call back the same day as soon as possible.
Please don’t ask them to interrupt a visit unless it’s actually urgent.
In case of an urgent request, you can call our personal phones (you can find the numbers on our site or on our business cards or prescriptions). Or you can ask the secretaries to help you trace the specialist you need.
This is a private medical practice. It is not part of the National Health Service.
However, almost all of our specialists follow a policy of moderate fees.
If there is a real need on the part of the patient, we will apply a reduced fee. In exchange, we ask that patients pay at the moment of the visit.
Payment can be made by credit card or ATM card, cash or Italian check.
The specialists who accept credit cards or ATM card payment are Doctors Abbassian, Bacci, Bergamaschi, Bianconi, Bonfiglio, Bresciani, Bruno, Coen, De Arcangelis, Gaido, Giorgini, Groff, Leone, Leoni, Levenstein, Maccioni, Naumann, Perissé, Shashaj, Stainier Benoit, Verola, Vitelli and Zannoni.
