Specialist Consultant for Thyroid Disorders

Dr Scarlett Lewitschnig

Dr Scarlett Lewitschnig, is a nuclear medicine consultant and GP specialist in thyroid disorders, functional medicine and aesthetics, with a private practice in Klagenfurt, Austria.

Having obtained her primary medical degree from the Karl-Franzens-University in Graz, Austria in 2001, followed by three years of GP training, Dr Lewitschnig continued her education and obtained international experience in Australia. It was here that she joined the physician training program and become a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, specialising in nuclear medicine.

During her final year, she attended at Guys and St. Thomas’ in London, working at the PET centre, as well as in acute medicine outside of London and general nuclear medicine. She then moved back to Austria, initially working in the nuclear medicine department of her local hospital, and a holistic health care centre.

Dr Lewitschnig’s vast experience, ultimately pathed the way for her to start her own private practice, giving her the opportunity to tailor conventional medical and holistic treatments specifically to the needs of her patients.

Frustrated by some of the baseless claims of the cosmetic industry, over the years she has also obtained knowledge in skin care, effective skin care ingredients and aesthetics.

Her approach to medicine is to integrate holistic and conventional medicine whilst also incorporating nutrition, supplements, mesotherapy and infusions. An individual and holistic approach to the patients’ concerns is at the heart of her practice.
