We bid farewell to Dr. med. Gerhard Sattler - Founder and Medical Director of the Rosenpark Klinik

Dear friends of the Rosenpark Klinik,

It is unspeakably difficult for us to inform you that our founder and Medical Director Dr. Gerhard Sattler, MD, has passed away unexpectedly after a short and serious illness.

With his vision of the Rosenpark Klinik, he created a home and a second family for us 25 years ago.

We would like to thank our dear boss, a brilliant doctor, an extraordinary visionary, a unique person, a friend, for everything he did for us, for his patients, for aesthetic medicine, but above all for his clinic.

Our thoughts are with his family and surviving relatives.

We cannot put our feelings into words and are standing close together to process this heavy loss.

We will cherish his memory and continue to be there for you in his name.

In deep grief,

the Rosenpark family
