What do I need to make an appointment?
To see a specialist you require a valid, named referral from your GP or other referring practitioner.
This is a requirement of the Federal Government, so you can claim your rebate from Medicare.
Unfortunately, without a valid referral, Medicare will not reimburse you for any expenses from a specialist visit.
Your referral must be named to the specialist your consultation is booked with and must be signed and dated by the referring practitioner.
If you are unsure if your referral is valid please do not hesitate to contact us on 08 84 232 622
What do I bring on the day of my consultation and/or test?
Bring a list of current medications, any blood test results, CT scans or x-rays you have to the first appointment.
What Tests will I need to have?
You may need a number of tests to obtain a diagnosis and staging. The more common tests are outlined below. Your specialist will discuss with you which tests you will require.
CT scan of the chest
Bronchoscopy – for this procedure you will be given sedation and a local anaesthetic will be sprayed onto the back of your throat to numb it. The doctor will then insert a flexible tube into your nose or mouth and down your windpipe. During the procedure, the doctor will take a sample.
Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) guided Bronchoscopy - similar procedure to a bronchoscopy however a small ultrasound probe is on the end of the bronchoscope as well.
Respiratory Function Tests
How do I cancel or reschedule my appointment?
