NEW PATIENT INFO
Please arrive 10 mins early & fill the new patient registration form available at reception counter prior to your first consult. Our reception area is shared with other health practitioners. Please take a seat in reception & we will be with you shortly.
There is no need to confirm your appointment or arrival as your physio may be with other patients & your scheduled appointment is reserved especially for you.
We will meet you at reception at the start of your appointment. But do let us know are running more the 5 mins late via sms. The rest room is available at the end of the hallway.
WHAT TO WEAR
Loose fitting clothing is better suited to physiotherapy treatment sessions as you may need to undress or perform exercise. Tight fitting clothing is best avoided for the treatment session, you are welcome to change in our bathroom prior to your visit or the treatment room. We suggest avoiding restrictive clothing especially if you have an acute injury with pain, swelling or inflammation, as removing clothing may aggravate your complaint prior or post treatment. e.g. skinny jeans
Physios are primary health providers and referral letters are not required to make appointments. If you are a cardiorespiratory patient or are post operative from a recent surgery, please read the information we require to enable better provision of our services.
Please bring all medical reports from any diagnostic imaging or investigations that is relevant to your complaint to your initial appointment. Due to privacy laws patients will need to request these from their medical center or Specialist as we can not request them. Please bring a copy or request reports be faxed to our clinic eg. MRI, Xray, CT Scan, Dexa Scans, Spirometry, etc
Should you require further investigation related to your complaint, we can discuss the options and refer you directly for diagnostic imaging.
sICK OR UNWELL?
We ask all patients who are sick, unwell with cold, influenza virus or gastro to rest and return when you are fully recovered. We have patients who are critically unwell, immune compromised & post operative who may be adversely affected. As health providers we provide treatment to many patients and also do not wish to be infected.
Your appointment is scheduled especially for you, we do not double book patients or treat multiple patients at the same time. In making the booking you are agreeing to attend at your scheduled appointment time. If you are running more than 5 mins late please sms us.
