REFERRALS

Initial referrals to specialists will require a consultation with your doctor who can decide on the most appropriate specialist for your needs. You may also need to have some tests/investigations done prior to seeing the specialist to ensure you get the most benefit out of your appointment.

 

Ongoing referrals can be requested over the phone in some circumstances. Your doctor will advise reception staff if this is not appropriate and you will then be advised to make an appointment.

 

If you are referred to a specialist outside the Mildura area please ask your doctor or reception staff for a travel claim form. These forms are only available if the type of specialist you are seeing is not available in the Mildura area and that location is the nearest specialist.

 

Referrals are not required to see an optometrist, chiropractor, podiatrist or physiotherapist, however in some instances your doctor may consider it appropriate to send one.
