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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your appointment.
A referral is not needed to see any of the Allied Health team.
