Your health in safe hands

Doctor Robert Popken has been treating patients from his Carvoeiro clinic for more than 20 years and offers a friendly, multi-lingual, professional service to patients on either an emergency or appointment basis.

An experienced consultant physician, member of the American society of internal medicine and a fellow American College Physician, Dr Popken worked in both Holland and in America before settling in the Algarve.

“I offer the services of a general practitioner, GP, but I am an internal medicine specialist in adults and because of this, I specialise in lung, heart, liver and other internal problems,” said Dr Popken.

“I have equipment in my clinic to undertake routine cardiology examinations, lung test, ultra sounds, diabetes tests and even perform small surgeries,” he added.

He is available by appointment at his clinic in Carvoeiro and also operates a smaller clinic in Vila Real de Santo António.

If you require the attention of Dr Popken in an emergency, he is also available for house calls and you do not need to be an existing patient to take advantage of this service, although he said: “Most problems can be addressed over the telephone.”

Dr Popken speaks fluent Dutch, English, German, French and Portuguese.

To make an appointment with Dr Popken, please call the clinic in Carvoeiro on 282 356 034 or in an emergency call him on his mobile, 919 654 034.
