Huisartsen Kwatrecht with Dr. Deprost & Dr. Venneman has been in existence since 1983.

Address: Brusselsesteenweg 232, Wetteren, Belgium 

Who we are : 

Dr. Luc Deprost and Dr. Myriam Venneman have been working there full-time for decades as accredited, recognized, and contracted general practitioners. Dr Tali Rahoens is working here as a third doctor. There is a vacancy for the 4th doctor. He or she is a graduate doctor in general medicine. Her training to become specialized in family medicine takes the form of daily consultations in the office (and several meetings a month with university departments).

The office phone number is 09 369 98 98. Secretaries and nurses will give you the necessary information or make an appointment ( if you are not able to make it online yourself). In selected cases, you may also be connected to one of the doctors outside of consultations (via the same telephone number). Direct talks with a doctor are guaranteed between 13.15 and 13.45. (1.15 and 1.45 p.m.)

During office hours, we work simultaneously in several rooms with the main entrance and a common waiting room. The doctors share medical records and can do the follow-up of all patients. You keep the free choice of doctor.

All general practitioners work full-time. Apart from in-office consultations, there are home visits to people who are too ill or far too old to leave their houses.

We always work according to the legal rates. Also in 2023. For all the doctors, the rates and reimbursement are the same. When you are a member of a Belgian Mutualiteit (everybody with a labor contract has that right, also for his family) you only pay the supplement (= 1 to 6 euros during the day, depending on your status). In the case of technical acts, such as stitching wounds or cardiograms,  there is a slightly higher supplement of e.g.  7-15 euros.

Appointment booking


It is preferable to make an appointment at When it comes to a non-urgent case (eg to renew medication) it is best to avoid Mondays and Fridays as these are the busiest days (before and after the weekend).

If there is no more room available on the desired day, feel free to give us a call, and we can see how far you are adding to the schedule. You can also request an appointment by e-mail at In this case, it is best to do it at least two days in advance.

For home visits, please make the request before 10 a.m. The day before is also possible if the need is known in advance.

A direct phone call to a doctor

To talk to a doctor about results or planned examinations, please call between 1.15 p.m. and 1.45 p.m. If you would like to have the details of a result, please make an appointment as long calls are not always clear and also interfere with the consultations of others.

Residential and social care centers

We visit 10 residential care centers for the elderly in Wetteren and its surroundings (Melle, Oosterzele, Laarne, Lemberge, Oordegem). There are files with a summary of medical data there, for the nursing staff.

This also applies to MFC Sint-Lodewijk and Home Diepenbroek in Wetteren, care centers for people suffering from movement restrictions where we are appointed general practitioners and medical coordinators (
