All appointments can be arranged by calling .
Our office hours are 9 am to 5 pm and we are conveniently located in Warringal Medical Centre in the inner north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Heidelberg and opposite the well-known Austin and Repatriation Medical Centre.
As a Specialist clinic, patients need referral from their General Practitioner, family physician or other doctor to be eligible for a rebate from Medicare.
Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your appointment for registration and to fill in a health questionnaire.
When you come for your appointments, please remember to bring the following
- Medicare or Veterans Affairs card
- Insurance information
- Copies of operation records, medical records, x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and so on from prior doctor visits.
- If you have had surgery elsewhere, please bring a copy of your operation report.
Very often during the course of your evaluation or treatment for an orthopaedic condition we will require x-rays to determine the cause of a problem or to evaluate your progress. If not all the relevant information is available at the time of your appointment this may cause a delay in your treatment.
Appointments for X-ray are not necessary
These are continually staffed whenever any doctor is consulting, which covers most of the week.
Please dress so that the body part you are having trouble with can be easily examined and/or X-rayed. For example, please wear shorts if you are attending for a knee problem.
To cancel an appointment:
Telephone the office during business hours. Please cancel at least 1 day ahead so that your appointment time can be allocated to another patient who is seeking treatment.
Your time is valuable and we make every effort to run on time. As you can imagine, emergencies occur that cause scheduling delays beyond our control. We apologise in advance if we keep you waiting.
