What to expect?

Registration: You will need to complete a registration form on your first visit and update any changes on future visits. This will include some basic important information about you, including contact details, referrer details and health insurance details.

Ultrasound: Most circulation conditions will require regular vascular ultrasound scans.

This usually takes 15-30 minutes and is done at no additional out-of-pocket cost.

Consultation: This will take into consideration all information provided by you, other doctors and allied health providers, and test results. Please remember to wear clothing that will be appropriate for a clinical examination. An initial consultation may take 15-30 minutes while follow up consultations may take 10-15 minutes.

Procedures: These will be planned with you during the consultation and any expenses will be quoted prior to proceeding.
