General practitioner

Welcome to Aava

General practitioner with a big heart. I have worked with a number of health centers, hospitals and emergency rooms in Finland. I have a lot of experience with acute illnesses, and I am also happy to work as your long-term family physician who knows you well.

I can help you with for example:

  • Treatment and follow up of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, stomach problems
  • Acute illnesses such as infections, wounds, dizziness, headache
  • Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, insomnia or panic attacks
  • Musculoskeletal disorders such as back or shoulder pain
  • I gladly and carefully do small procedures such as skin biopsies, nail procedures, wound sutures and joint injections.

Book 20 minutes appointment for quick and simple problems. If you have complex or multiple problems (e.g. sleep or mental health problems) please book a longer 30-45-60min appointment.

I can assess when the situation requires a specialist's opinion and I can write a referral if necessary. If you have any medications, please take them listed on paper (name, dosage) to the appointment so we have time for the actual treatment.
