Our priority during the Covid-19 pandemic is the safety of our patients and staff. For this reason, we are unable to see you in the clinic if you are experiencing respiratory (cold/flulike) symptoms. It is important that you let our receptionist know at the time of making your appointment if you have ANY of the below symptoms.
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
- Runny nose
- Vomiting or nausea
- Loss of smell and/or taste
What happens if you have any of the above symptoms?
Bulk billed Telehealth appointments are available to our patients if they have been seen face to face in the clinic in the past twelve months. If you have not been seen in the past twelve months, but are a patient of ours and wish to have an appointment, you can have a private telehealth appointment, which will cost $85.00 and must be paid on the day.
Alternatively, you can contact your nearest respiratory clinic for a face to face appointment with a doctor. Click the following hyperlink for more information.
