Referral Expectations

Prior to making an appointment, Mr Heppner will require a referral from your family doctor, a specialist or a physiotherapist.

What to Bring to your Appointment

  • Any CDs of x-rays or scans relating to your current medical problem along with the reports.
  • Any reports from other medical specialists who have seen you regarding this current medical problem.
  • A medication list with dosages relating to any medication you may be taking.
  • If you have been in a hospital in relation to your current problem please bring a copy of the Discharge Summary.
  • You are very welcome to bring along a support person who can be both reassuring and help with your understanding of the consultation and discussion.

A typical first consultation takes around 45 minutes. During this a thorough history and examination will be taken. After this any imaging that has been performed will be reviewed and a plan made. Often this will include further imaging. Most brain and spine conditions require an MRI scan (or CT) to guide treatment. At a subsequent consultation, the results of any investigations will be discussed and a plan for treatment (surgical or non surgical) and follow up will be made.
