Questions to ask your Rheumatologist

Are there lifestyle measures I can institute?

Apart from medications, what else can I do to improve how I'm feeling?

How do I prevent damage to my joints?

What can I do to remain active and doing as much as I can?

Can you help me understand the pro's and con's of different treatment options that are available?

If there are medications that might help me, are there any side effects I should know about?

Do I need to be on time?

  • Please be on time. We pride ourselves on being punctual but this only works if our patients arrive on time as well.
  • Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your initial appointment to fill out any necessary paperwork.
  • Should you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please inform us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • We deliver a professional service and respect your rights, dignity, privacy, feelings and cultural customs.

How do I obtain a referral?

A valid referral is required to consult with one of our Rheumatologists in order to be eligible for a Medicare rebate. A referral for a Rheumatologist can be obtained from your GP or from another specialist. A referral from a GP is valid for 12 months and a referral from a specialist is valid for 3 months.

If you have not already sent or uploaded your referral please forward a copy to doctor@bjchealth.com.au prior to your appointment.

A referral is not needed to see any of the Allied Health team.
