Augsburg: Doctor Reinhard Eder treats people without insurance – Bavaria

Internist Reinhard Eder takes care of people who do not have health insurance. The story of his first patient makes it clear that the need is urgent.

The room in which Reinhard Eder is standing is one thing above all: brown. Wall cupboard brown on one side, table and the two chairs to the left and right of it brown, just like the coat rack above. Eder’s shirt, as white as it appears in the detergent advertisements, is therefore the only indication of his work as a doctor and the use of this room, which has been the waiting room of a doctor’s office for a week. No plants, no magazine potpourri and certainly no sonorous gurgling water dispenser. An Internet router dangles on a cable at the level of the doorknob.
