On the day of your appointment, please arrive 10-minutes early to ensure we have enough time to prepare any outstanding paperwork.
During your first appointment, a thorough medical and diagnostic work-up may be required.
If you have completed any tests, please send these to our practice manager ([email protected]) prior to your appointment so Dr Savdie can review in advance. Occasionally, Dr Savdie might ask you to obtain additional tests prior to your appointment.
You are welcome to bring a support person to your appointment if you wish to do so.
If the condition relates to a Workers Compensation claim, please bring your claim number, approval letter for appointment, insurer details, name and contact details of your case manager.
We happily offer telehealth consultations, but unfortunately Medicare does not offer a rebate for the initial consultation, so the first consultation is entirely out-of-pocket. Medicare rebates are available for all subsequent telehealth consultations, however.
If you have booked a telehealth consult via our team, we will send you details of how to connect. If you do not receive these, please call us.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please telephone our clinic during business hours and allow at least 24 – 48 hours’ notice so that we can offer your appointment time to other patients waiting for a consultation. Same-day cancellations may attract a cancellation fee, which would need to be paid before further consultations are offered.
If you undergo surgery, the necessary post-operative appointments will be scheduled. These are important appointments to monitor your recovery progress and avoid complications.
