WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR CONSULTATION:

A REFERRAL FROM YOUR GP

You must have a referral from your general practitioner to claim a medicare rebate for both your consultation and surgery if required. If you do not have a valid referral, you are not entitled to claim a medicare rebate. Please note, we are unable to ask your general practitioner to backdate a referral for you. 

X-RAYS OR OTHER IMAGING

If your images are on CD, please let us know prior to your appointment, so we can load them onto our system. We can access most imaging on line to please pass on all details about the locations where you have had any past scans. If you have old images, please bring them in if possible as they can be quite useful for diagnosis and treatment.
