2 WAYS TO CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR – TELEHEALTH or IN-CLINIC
We’ve made it easier than ever to consult with your doctor throughout the pandemic period. Telehealth is a convenient way to consult with your doctor if you are unable to visit the clinic. We also understand that most patients prefer to visit the clinic and specific consultations do require a face to face consultation. For the time being in-clinic consultations must be made by phoning the clinic and Telehealth consultations can be booked online.
