What to Expect on Your First Visit

Time

Please allow at least 50 minutes to an hour for your initial consultation. It is also a good idea to arrive 10-15 minutes earlier to allow you some time to complete your Patient History Form.

Medical History & Examination

During your initial consultation, Sam will discuss your full medical / health history and undertake a number of tests based on your presenting symptoms (tests may include range of motion tests, reflex tests, neurological examination, orthopaedic tests etc).

Any treatment administered on the day will be discussed with you prior to application. Feel free to write down any questions you have prior to your appointment and Sam will endeavour to answer as many as he can during your initial consultation.

X-Rays

Please bring any x-rays relevant to your consultation with you (if they were taken within the last 2 years). Depending on the quality and date of your x-rays, Sam may refer you to a local Radiology Clinic to have a new set of x-rays taken. Chiropractic x-rays are all bulked billed, so these will come at no extra charge to you.

Private Health Rebates

For your convenience the clinic has a HICAPS machine for on-the-spot Private Health Fund rebates. The amount you receive back for each visit will depend on your level of cover and the health fund you are with.

Payment

Full payment is required on the day of your appointment.

We accept VISA, Mastercard and cash payments. Please refer to to the latest rates schedule shown here for initial and subsequent consultations prices.
