We realise that there can be a lot of information to take in at your doctor visits and at times this can be overwhelming. To aid with this, we have included information on our website for you to read at your convenience and to ensure that you get the most out of your visit with us.
ABOUT YOUR VISIT
Preparation for your visit
Patients will need to visit their local GP to obtain a referral to see Dr Mandapati. These referrals usually only last 12 months and are required for all patients to be eligible for Medicare Rebates associated with your consultation with Dr Mandapati.
At your first consultation with Dr Mandapati, please ensure you:
Have your GP referral. If you do not have a letter (e.g. if your doctor is sending or faxing a letter), please confirm by telephone (02) 4322 7744 prior to the appointment day that we have received it
A printed new patient registration form (which will be sent by email), containing your personal contact details, Medicare and private health fund details
Provide any other medical information, history, or blood test results that may be relevant to your health care
Bring any ultrasound scans and x-ray reports and films
Please contact us for information on Obstetric Fees and Charges.
We pride ourselves in keeping to our appointment times, however there may be times when emergencies arise. Should an unfortunate situation arise, we will endeavour to liaise with you to come to alternative arrangements.
To cancel or postpone an appointment, we appreciate 24 hours’ notice, so someone requiring care can have your appointment time.
