Adrie has been working in this practice since 1987. Initially he was an extra general practitioner for his predecessor Herman Kraamer. In 1991 he took over the practice together with Erik Hochheimer. Unfortunately, in 2005 Erik had to give up the profession of general practitioner for health reasons.
After that, Adrie ran the practice on his own for a time. From 2010 to 2017 a partnership was formed with Arjan de Meij. From October 2017 Adrie will carry on by himself. He intends to work as a general practitioner for at least another 10 years.
Adrie has a great deal of knowledge about HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases, (terminal) homecare, while he also works as a sexuologist. On Tuesday evenings and Wednesdays he gives extra consultations on sexual matters in a centre separately set up for this purpose: Sexuology Centre Amsterdam, also at Koestraat 5-A.
Since 1988 the practice is also a training practice for young GPs. This means that every year another doctor under training works along in the practice. He hopes that everyone will gain as much satisfaction from this group of young doctors as he does from training them. Although Adrie feels strongly about personal contact with his patients, he cannot always be personally available to all of them. He hopes to guarantee good care for all patients and by all team members by ensuring that the computer system is kept up to date, with close attention to proper and correct reporting, so that good care is safeguarded for everybody. (And as most of you know, he loves Apple computers.)
