Patient Information

Appointments

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first appointment to allow time to fill in the new patient registration forms.

What to bring:

You will need a current referral from your general practitioner or referring specialist.

Your Medicare card details will be collected by our clerical staff along with details of your private insurance or any concession cards you may have. If your appointment relates to a Workcover or compensable injury please bring details of your claim including your claim number.

Please bring any relevant imaging such as x-rays, ultrasound, CT or MRI scans. If your most current images are more than 6 months old then it may be worth getting new ones repeated prior to your appointment. If you are unsure then this can be discussed with your referring doctor or one of our team.

Please bring any relevant blood or pathology tests that are relevant to your presenting problem.

It is usually a good idea to wear comfortable and lose clothing that will allow your specialist to examine your affected body part. For hip and knee examination its is useful to have a pair or shorts that can be worn.

Pricing Policy

Fees for your appointment will be discussed with you prior to your consultation. Payment of your account will be required on the day of your appointment. We accept cash and we have EFTPOS facilities available. We accept Visa and Mastercard. Your accounts can be submitted to Medicare by our staff for processing your rebate on the day of your consultation.

Cancellation

Please give us at least 24 hours notice for all cancellations to allow our staff to help you reschedule your appointment if required. It also allows us to offer that time-slot to patients on our waiting list or for emergency patients.

We recognise that your time is valuable and we make every effort to run on time for your appointment. Occasionally emergencies occur or some patients may require a little more time. This may cause delays that are beyond our control. We apologise in advance if this occurs and for any inconvenience that this may cause.
