Welcome to the European Medical Center, a clinic or group practice of general and specialized Medical Doctors and paramedical therapists, especially osteopaths and physiotherapists ("kinésithérapeutes").

There is also a blood sampling every morning. Please note that we cannot perform coronavirus tests/swabs (SARS-CoV-2) without a valid medical prescription for the moment, this is prohibited by the Belgian federal government since end of October.

For further informations for testing, please consult MaSanté.Belgique.be, the Belgian federal site for your personal health, or for general informations regarding the Covid-19 crisis please go to info-coronavirus.be.

We have a secretary (reception), which is open from Monday to Friday between 8:30 and 17:00, but closed on Saturday, Sunday and official Belgian holidays. The reception is also open every day during the vacation/holiday seasons, but may be closed earlier on the afternoon in the holiday season.

Please note that you are obliged to wear a mask in our Center!

The reception can help you for all questions regarding our Center and our therapists and they can arrange appointments for most of the therapists - but some manage their schedules themselves and some accept also appointments via Doctena (EUMC) – please check below.

After the first lockdown, all the doctors and therapists started again or continue to see patients for treatment.

For any question, just call the secretary: 02 / 280.13.42, or send an email: e.m.c@skynet.be (Mail, but the answer may need one or two days).

Our Center is in the heart of the European quarter, in the neighborhood "quartier des Squares" in Brussels at Square Ambiorix 40, just 500 m away from Rond-point Schuman and its European institutions, metro and rail connections (see the plan of STIB, the Brussels' metro agency, as PDF, for Schuman). And a bus stop is directly in front of the Center at Square Ambiorix.

Our laboratory

We work with the renowned international laboratory Synlab, which is one of the largest and best in Belgium.

Due to new regulations by the Belgian federal government from end of October, we can do swabs for coronavirus tests (SARS-COV-2) ONLY on a valid medical prescription from your G.P. (or any other doctor). We are not allowed and not able to do tests for asymptomatic people, who had a close contact to an infected patient, not for people coming from abroad or wishing to go abroad. These tests are flatly prohibited in Belgium for the moment.

If you have a valid medical prescription, we do the swabs ("frottis") in the nose and throat ("nasopharyngeal") for PCR tests for a direct detection of the coronavirus (SARS-COV-2). On medical prescription, we do also the blood samples for serolgy to detect antibodies against the virus, which proofs that you have had already the infection. After the swab/sampling you get a code for finding the results online. Later, the laboratory will send you an invoice (or bills your Belgian insurance, "mutuelle", directly, if you have one).

If you come for a "normal" testing, our nurse takes blood and does also all kinds of sampling in our Center: The blood, urine and other samples are collected several times every day and usually the results are send to the ordering doctor already in the evening (except for special tests, which may take some days).

For the good organisation, make at first an appointment via our reception (02 / 280.13.42) for all blood samples, tests and swabs. Or you make your appointment online by Doctena (Link). Please come to our Center some 5-10 minutes in advance, not too early, and alone (only for children less than 12 years, one parent is authorised to accompany them). Please wear your mask in the Center. Show your Identity Card (either your Belgian or any other) and your medical prescription to the reception. At first you have to fill a form, which you can do in our supplementary waiting room. Afterwards the nurse does the swap or blood sampling. And that's it!

Thank you for your understanding!

Stay healthy!
