Have you recently returned from overseas?

If you answer Yes or are Unsure to these questions please contact us immediately on 9650 4284.
We request that you DO NOT ATTEND THE CLINIC without seeking prior advice from us.
Are you contagious?
Do you believe you are suffering from a contagious condition? Do you have a fever?
Please let us know when you book an appointment or when you arrive. We may need to place you in a separate waiting area to minimise the risk to you and other patients.
Whilst our doctors always endeavour to run to time it is often a difficult balance. Should any patient require more time, and scheduling another appointment is not appropriate, our doctors will give the time required.
If time is critical, we would suggest booking the first appointment of the day, or the first appointment after lunch - barring any emergency you certainly have an improved chance of being seen on time!
Our administrative staff do attempt to advise all patients when they book an appointment if their doctor may run behind and phone you if they are behind. As a backup we also suggest that you phone 30 minutes prior to your appointment to check how the doctor is going.
We also endeavour to advise you when you arrive how long your wait may be.
Please do ask us when you book if your doctor tends to run behind, and also when you arrive, how long your wait may be.
Who are you?
Correct patient identification is vital. To make sure we have the correct person booked in, and treat the right person, please identify yourself when you come in. No matter how well we know you, please state your name, date of birth and address to our reception staff. This is also a great way for us to ensure we have all of your up to date details.
