On Arrival

Reception staff will collect your completed patient information and consent forms and register you as a patient. We also welcome these completed forms faxed or electronically forwarded back prior to your appointment.

You may first be seen by one of our Neurosurgical Registrars or Fellows after which the doctor will perform any further assessments required and discuss your condition and treatment options.

On Departure

Reception staff will then create the account for your consult and any testing performed. Upon payment reception can electronically lodge the account/receipt with Medicare if you wish. Any review appointments that need to be made will be booked for you before you leave.
