WE KNOW YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE AND MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEEDS.
North Sydney Doctors’ consultations are normally by appointment only. However, walk-in appointments are accommodated and patients are seen as soon as possible. Urgent cases will be seen immediately. Please communicate this clearly to reception staff.
The Practice has a policy that we will fit in young children at any time if a parent is concerned the issue is serious. We will prioritize young children even if we are fully booked.
Please make sure that you clearly communicate concerns about young children to our reception staff.
Our Practice participates in State recall systems, such as Pap Smears. Our doctors will ask your permission to include your details at the time of your consultation. We also have a reminder system and, if necessary, your details will be added so that we may follow you up when and if needed to check on any outstanding health matters.
As an alternative to phoning our reception,you can book online through this website or via HotDoc. Appointments are normally 15 minutes, but longer consultations may be needed for the following:
• Insurance or Full Physical Examinations
• Minor surgical procedures
• Mental Health Assessments or Counselling sessions
• Multiple medical issues needing discussion
• Health care planning
• Gynaecological checkups.
The health of our patients is important to us. There will be times when our practitioners need to spend more time with patients than originally allocated, causing us to run late. Please remember that you will also be afforded any extra time that you may need if it is appropriate.
If you think you may need a longer consultation, please speak to our reception for advice.
