My name is Ayso de Vries (1976) and I grew up in Nijmegen in a GP’s nest. I studied medicine in Groningen and not long after I started a PhD at the radiology department at the AMC. This resulted in a dissertation (2009), after which I trained as a radiologist for several years. This training did not suit me, and after some wanderings I started the GP training in 2014. I did my GP training in Utrecht. The last year of my training I did in the health center Mariahoek aan de Singel (Utrecht center). I have been a general practitioner since the spring of 2017.
For several years I worked with great pleasure as one of the regular GPs in the Mariahoek. Since the summer of 2021, I have founded DomstadDokters together with two enthusiastic colleagues. I enjoy working here. I also work one day a week in a forensic psychiatric institution as a general practitioner.
The diversity of the activities within general practice, the contact with you (or rather “you”) and the customization is the most appealing thing about the profession. In addition, I perform an ultrasound examination of the abdomen, something that I brought back from the hospital.
I have a girlfriend and two young children. I like reading, good food, rowing, racing bikes and running. I also like to travel by bicycle or motorcycle.
