Drs. Djoeke Beekman

Internal Medicine Specialist

I have been working at ACIBADEM as an internist since January 2019. In 2014 I completed my training as an internist in acute medicine at the VUmc. In previous years I have worked in various hospitals in the Netherlands, both in the outpatient clinic and in the emergency department. Within my profession, I enjoy the contact with my patients the most. My goal is therefore to choose the best possible treatment, together with each patient, that suits the situation in question. In addition, I work together with the AmsterdamUMC location VUmc to investigate and help women with complaints that may be related to silicone.
