Associate Professor, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna (Austria)
Oncologist • Focused on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and research in the field of targeted therapies. Director of the metastatic breast cancer program, co-director of the brain metastases program, and associate professor of medicine at the Medical University of Vienna.
I was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1975. Upon graduating from the University of Vienna, I worked as a physician in training at different Viennese hospitals, among them St. Anna Children´s Hospital, an academic center for pediatric hematology.
In 2002, I joined the Clinical Division of Oncology at the Medical University of Vienna where I work closely with other breast cancer specialists within the Austrian Breast and Colorectal Study Group (ABCSG). From 2009 to 2010, I was the director of the breast center at the Elisabethinen Hospital Linz. Since 2010, I'm an associate professor of medicine at the Medical University of Vienna and currently serve as director of the metastatic breast cancer program and co-director of the brain metastases program. Furthermore, I'm a member of the ABCSG executive committee.
Apart from clinical research in the field of breast cancer and brain metastases, my main scientific interest is the identification of resistance mechanisms to targeted therapies. I have published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals, among them Clinical Cancer Research, Journal of Clinical Oncology, and Lancet Oncology.
Thank you very much for your expert opinion. The proposal of treatment was also of great help to me.
Druhý posudok, ktorý poskytol prof. dr. Bartsch bol nami vo veľmi krátkom čase konzultovaný a následne akceptovaný našim ošetrujúcim lekárom a podľa jeho názoru bola upravená ďalšia liečba. Ocenili by sme, ak by v rámci poplatku mohol byť prípad otvorený aj dlhšie a špecialistovi by sme mohli klásť aj ďalšie otázky - po určitom čase, keď bude odpoveď na zmenu odporúčaného liečba sa prejavuje v organizme pacienta. V každom prípade vám ďakujeme za pomoc!
THANK YOU for your opinion. It is very difficult for me to consult my condition with my doctor, given the time constraints he is in due to the enormous number of patients waiting for his work.
Thanks to Dr. Rupert Bartsch for the explanations in the report sent. Personally, the doctor's instructions were helpful to me.
Thank you for the report. Meanwhile, my attending doctor also performs examinations and proceeds as described in the report.
Thank you for the opinion, which was brief but clear and easy to understand and confirmed the correctness of our doctor's procedure. Also, the report, including the translation, was quickly prepared, for which you deserve admiration as a doctor or the entire diagnose.me team. Thanks again.
First of all, I was surprised by the speed of the report. There were 7 working days in the description. The answer came on the 2nd working day. The report confirmed the diagnosis and provided more detailed information on the treatment.
