Drs. Emile Keuter


After my medical exam I worked in neurology in Arnhem and Curaçao. Then I trained as a neurologist in Groningen. As a neurologist I worked in Dokkum and with great pleasure in Meppel for 22 years. At that time, the neurology department grew from two to seven neurologists. Because I love working in an organization in which I oversee the entire field, I left Meppel when the hospital was taken over by a large healthcare organization. I then started working in Aruba as chairman of an international team of four neurologists. Because of my international work I am used to individual care for people with diverse cultural backgrounds and I feel above all a world citizen. You can contact me with any questions about the nervous system, because I have a lot of experience. If you wish, I will help you understand previous medical research. Your health and your wishes are central to this.
