My First Visit

What to expect

During your initial visit the doctor will ask you some questions about your symptoms. Try and be specific and clear as this will help him to better understand your condition. He will explain the specific tests or procedures needed, help you understand the results and go over the risks. He may do a physical examination and ask you a bunch of questions. Once you have had the tests done, he will discuss the results and treatment options with you.

What to bring

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first appointment so that you may complete patient information forms and a health questionnaire.

Please remember to bring the following with you to your appointment:

  • Referral letter from GP, family physician or other doctor
  • Medicare card, DVA card, Pension card
  • Have your private hospital insurance information with you
  • Copies of results, x-rays, MRI’s, CT scans, blood test results and any other relevant information
