PRACTICE INFORMATION

Appointments
The easiest way for you to see your doctor is to make an appointment. Doctors make every effort to see appointments as close to time as possible, although unavoidable delays can occur when our doctors must attend to a patient with complex or serious medical conditions. Some consultations may require a longer appointment for things such as insurance/pre-employment medicals or you may have problems that need more time to discuss. Please inform the receptionist when booking if you may require an extended appointment. We encourage you to see the doctor of your choice to ensure continuity of care and the establishment of a professional relationship.

Cancellations
If you are unable to attend your appointment please notify us of this in plenty of time, so your appointment time can be allocated to someone else. Please be advised that repeated non-attendance without cancelling appointments will incur a fee, which is non-refundable by Medicare.

Test Results
All test results are checked by your doctor. Most results are back with your doctor within 72 hours. Unless otherwise advised all patients are asked to make an appointment to discuss results with their doctor. This ensures your confidentiality and the appropriate action for your result. A normal result may not mean that no further action is necessary.

Reminder System
Our practice is committed to preventative care. We may issue you with a reminder notice/call/SMS offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care.

Emergencies
Priority treatment is given to seriously ill or injured patients. We are able to deal with most emergencies and trauma. Please notify the receptionist on arrival.
