You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to your consultation if you wish.
During the first part of the consultation I will ask about your symptoms and how they affect your life. I will take a detailed history of your condition, conduct a physical examination and review any test results, x-rays or medical reports.
I will explain your condition and discuss your health outcome goals. I will then present some treatment options and help you decide on the best course of action. When we have agreed on a treatment approach I will provide an outline of what to expect along the way.
You will be given printed information for later reference and I encourage you to ask questions and take notes if you wish.
Please bring to your appointment:
- Any letters or reports from your doctor or hospital
- Any X-Rays, CT or MRI films and reports
- All medicines you are currently taking including herbal and natural remedies
- Your ACC number if appropriate.
