As COVID-19 continues to circulate within the community, we will no longer be seeing unvaccinated patients face-to-face. These patients will be able to access telehealth appointments only.
Please note that new patients are unable to access telehealth appointments for their 1st visit due to Medicare requirements. The only exception for unvaccinated patients to be seen for a face-to-face appointment will be to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
Telephone consultations are available. We are also practicing social distancing with seating now available outside the practice .
PATIENTS WITH ANY RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS, INTERSTATE TRAVEL, POSSIBLE COVID CONTACT OR ANYONE ADVISED TO ISOLATE MUST CALL FOR AN INITIAL TELEPHONE INTERVIEW BEFORE ATTENDING.
