Your hand therapist is qualified as either a Physiotherapist or an Occupational Therapist. It is possible that your private health fund will reimburse you different amounts depending on your treating therapist’s profession. Please discuss your level of cover with your insurer if you have any queries.
Consultations are available from Monday through Friday, by appointment.
No referral is necessary for hand therapy services unless the case is covered under Workers Compensation, Third Party Insurance or DVA. In this instance, please speak to your General Practitioner to request a referral.
If your condition is urgent, please inform the secretary and she will endeavour to organise you an appointment as soon as possible.
For your convenience, we send SMS reminders of the date and time of your appointment. If you are not able to attend your scheduled appointment, we require 24 hours notice or a cancellation fee may be charged.
Please be aware that your initial consultation will take 30-45 minutes. To help us determine your diagnosis and provide appropriate care, please bring all relevant X-rays, scans and test results, along with your Doctor’s referral (if you were provided with one), to your initial consultation.
