What do we offer you?
Dr. Heike Sommer-Stern
My development to the person I am today is largely influenced by my grandparents who shaped me from an early age with their enormous herbal medicine knowledge. They had two drug stores in the Upper Styria region in Austria.
In my youth, I dedicated myself to competitive sport (tennis), went to school in Graz and moved to Vienna at the age of 14 to train at the Bundesportzentrum Südstadt. I played in many national and international tournaments and played pro WTA Tour tournaments.
At the age of 18, I decided to take the external Matura and started studying medicine at the age of 21. First in Graz and then in Vienna. I had my 2 wonderful children while studying and noticed my great joy and inspiration in medicine early on. Shortly after graduation, I completed acupuncture training at the Empress Elisabeth Hospital and additionally completed training at the Austrian Medical Association for emergency and sports medicine. As part of my general practitioner training, I worked at the UKH Meidling, the Wilhelminenspital, Kaiser Franz Joseph Spital and the SMZ Ost. Thereafter, I completed my specialist training in ENT medicine, also at the Kaiser Franz Josef Spital, where I received thorough operational training.
To this day, I enthusiastically attend advanced training courses in order to develop myself further and to combine my wealth of practical experience with in-depth knowledge. My goal is to create a balance between conventional medicine and complementary medicine. For me, health is not defined as the absence of disease, but as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. In the last few years I have been able to deepen my knowledge in orthomolecular medicine, hormone medicine and Chinese face reading.
