Do I need a referral from my GP?
No, you can make an appointment directly without a referral. If you have been diagnosed with a chronic medical condition and require complex care you may be eligible for Chronic Disease Management (CDM) assistance. The GP must complete a special referral form to refer you to an osteopath for treatment.
Can I claim for your services on my private health fund?
Yes. You can claim from your health fund if your policy covers you for that type of treatment. We have a HICAPS machine so you can claim on the spot and only pay the gap fee.
What do I need to bring?
Bring along any X-rays, scans or test results that you may have. The more information we have about you, the better!
Am I required to arrive early for my first appointment?
Yes, you should arrive early for your first appointment as you will need to fill out initial paperwork.
How long will my appointment take?
Your initial consultation will take around 60 minutes. This will enable your health practitioner to take a thorough history, examine and depending upon your condition and appropriateness treat you. Follow-up treatments are usually shorter. Please ask if you have any queries when booking an appointment.
What should I wear?
It’s important that you feel comfortable, so wear a comfortable shirt and loose pants or bring a pair of shorts to change into.
How many appointments will I need?
This depends on your condition and what type of treatment you are having. Generally you would expect to see some changes in your symptoms after one or two visits. Long term or chronic conditions may require more treatment. Your practitioner will discuss a treatment plan with you at your first visit. If you have any further questions please e-mail us or call the clinic, we are here to help!
