ASSESSMENT

Assessment requires a detailed history, examination and often investigation. You should bring any referrals, physiotherapy letters, and details of medications and past medical history. Frequently the history will disclose the actual problem or problems and the other clinical findings are used to confirm and help plan treatment. Sometimes several visits may be needed for you to be happy that  you understand the issues and are ready to proceed to the next stage of treatment. Surgery is used when other treatments don't or can't solve the issue. Bring a pad to make notes on. Bring someone to help you recall the discussion. Call or email if you need more information.

We work with you & your insurer to solve your concerns 

Our vision is to get you back doing the things you want and need to do. We achieve that with understanding about the issues and choices and an agreement to work together to solve your problems. We can arrange for treatment in a hospital that matches your type of insurance or will explain the alternative options you have.
