Please note all new patients will require 1 hour for their initial appointment. This will allow your physiotherapist to perform a full examination, educate you about your diagnosis and perform a treatment on your first visit. Should you not need a full hour, you will treated for the time required and charged accordingly.

As we close at 7pm, if you need an initial appointment, the latest we can offer this is at 6pm.

If you have any X-Rays/CT Scans/MRI’s that you think is important for us to see, please bring them along. Please ensure the report is with the scans if possible. Please bring any doctors referral with you for your initial appointment.

FAQs

Frequently asked questions

No, unless you are a patient who has had a work injury or a road accident covered by a third party insurer, you don’t need a referral. Just give us a call or jump online and make an appointment. If you have had a work injury or a road traffic accident, you will need to see your GP, who will give you a referral for physiotherapy.

Over many years of treating thousands of patients, we believe that having a bit of extra time when we first meet you allows a few good things to happen:

1. You have time to tell us your story right from the beginning which generally provides us with crucial information;

2. We are able to carefully and specifically diagnose your movement issues, discuss our diagnosis with you, formulate a treatment plan, and maybe even do some treatment on your first visit.

We believe that having only 30 or 40 mins for your first appointment can be not enough, and we risk missing valuable information either from your story or your body if everything is too rushed.

In saying that, for a simple ankle or wrist injury, with no other body part involvement, our front desk staff will be able to allocate 30 mins for your initial appointment.
