Appointments

For all appointments and enquiries, call 08 9311 4800 . As a Specialist clinic, patients need referral from their General Practitioner, family physician or other doctor to be eligible for a rebate from Medicare.

When you come for your appointment Remember to get the following:

Medicare or the veteran affairs card.
Referral letter from your GP, family physician or other doctor.
Have your insurance information.
Copies of operation records, medical records, x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and so on
from prior doctor visits.
If you have seen a physiotherapist, please bring a progress letter from the
therapist.
If you have had surgery elsewhere, please bring a copy of your operation report.

You may also arrange to have the records sent to us prior to your appointment.

Very often during the course of your evaluation or treatment for an orthopaedic condition
your doctor will require x-rays to determine the cause of a problem or to evaluate your
progress. If not all the relevant information is available at the time of your appointment
this may cause a delay in your treatment. In addition it may be necessary to repeat a study to complete your evaluation.

Please dress so that the body part you are having trouble with can be easily
examined and/or X-rayed. For example, please wear shorts if you are attending
for a knee problem.

To cancel an appointment:

Telephone the office during business hours. Please cancel at least 1 day ahead so that your appointment time can be allocated to another patient who is seeking treatment.

Your time is valuable and we make every effort to run on time. As you can imagine, emergencies occur that cause scheduling delays beyond our control. We apologise in advance if we keep you waiting
