The Beta Klinik – Clinic in Cologne

The Beta Klinik is expanding its services in the Rheinland area with another practice at 34 Genovevatrasse in Köln-Mühlheim. Patients suffering from complaints arising from the central and peripheral nervous system as well as head and spinal diseases are now able to be neurosurgically examined and advised.  Looking after the patients is Dr.med.
