- An up to date list of medications and known allergies
When do I arrive
Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment as our receptionists will need to check you in and a new patient registration form will need to be completed.
For new patients, 30 minutes is allocated for the consultation. This generally allows sufficient time to discuss the condition, perform an examination, and review any relevant investigations. In some instances, complex conditions require a longer consultation or can unexpectedly run late. At times a second appointment is useful to discuss additional aspects of your care or surgery in more detail.
Bringing along a family member or friend can be very useful to help recall the information discussed. If anything remains unclear after the consultation or you have further questions, feel free to contact us and make an additional appointment to discuss your condition further.
