Consultations at Clifton Hill Clinic are by appointment, with the exception of emergencies. Booking appointments is easy. Appointments can be made either through our online appointment system or by calling the Clinic during normal opening hours.
We ask all new patients to please either complete our online New Patient Registration Form or arrive at least 5 minutes before their first appointment, to allow time for their details to be recorded. Please also bring a list of any regular medications, including doses.
If you have an urgent medical problem please let our receptionists know. We will do our best to see you as quickly as possible.
Clifton Hill Clinic recognises that life is busy. We value our patient’s time and make every effort to run on schedule. However due to the uncertainty of the doctor’s work load this is not always possible. Patients can help the Clinic run on time by considering the length of the appointment time they book with the doctor.
When choosing an appointment time please keep the following in mind:
- In a standard appointment of 5-15 mins the doctor will usually be able to adequately address one to two issues.
- If you have multiple issues to discuss we suggest you book a longer appointment of 25-35 mins. Longer appointments will incur a higher fee.
- Procedures such as skin excision or emergency laceration repair will always require a longer appointment (35+ mins).
- Please ask reception if you are unsure of which type of appointment is needed.
If you have booked an appointment but are no longer able to attend please notify the Clinic at least 2 working hours before your booked time, so that the space may be made available to another patient. Failure to attend your appointment or a late cancellation may incur a fee.
To maintain a high standard of care, the Clinic policy is to see patients for a consultation rather than liaise by phone or email.
To make an appointment please call us on 9489 6123 or book online.
