Your First Visit

What should I bring?

For your first visit please bring the following items:

How long is my consultation?

Your consultation time will depend on the complexity of your condition. On average most consultations are around 45 minutes. Sometimes patients’ conditions are complex and require further time to discuss in details. In these cases your appointment may take longer.

In a few cases there is a considerable amount of information to discuss. You may be offered a second appointment to discuss further aspects in greater detail. If this is the case it is a good idea to write questions down and bring a family member performed with you.

Parking can be difficult around the hospital. There is limited street parking. Allow 2 hours on the meter for new referrals). Paid car parking is available under the hospital it self.
