Don't forget to bring your Medicare and any Concession Cards with you to each appointment.

If you wish to discuss any results, an appointment needs to be made with your doctor.

If you have any results requiring immediate action, you will be contacted to make a follow-up appointment with your doctor.

If you are unable to attend your appointment, please contact the practice on (03) 5358 7555 to cancel, at least two hours prior to your appointment time. This allows us to allocate the reserved time to another patient in need of an appointment.
