Check in at the reception desk upon arrival. You will be asked to confirm your details and inform us of any changes. If you are new to the clinic please arrive ten minutes early to complete registration forms.
When it is your turn, your first name will be called by the clinic nurse or doctor. During your consultation you will be asked a number of questions regarding your situation. Tests and examinations will be performed as required. If you're unfamiliar with these tests/exams, they will be explained to you.
Once your consultation is complete, you will be given a follow up slip to give to the receptionist. The receptionist will make a follow up appointment for you. Follow up appointments can either be performed in person or by phone, depending on the situation.
