Dr. Weinlich, your company´s line of business is not very common. How does one get into such a profession?
I originally qualified as a general surgeon. Later, I was the medical director of the German Air Rescue Service and have brought back many patients from all over the world.
Together with some friends we then had the idea to establish a company that offers an all-round service for patients abroad. The basic idea is that in many corners of the world you often don’t have the medical care that we are used to here in Central Europe. Sometimes you cannot speak the language so well. You don’t know if you are being treated well and often you don’t know who is paying.
