Your Appointment

Initial consultation

Dr Ward will meet you for an initial consultation to discuss your condition and recommend treatment strategies.  This will include operative and non-operative options.  You will need a referral from your GP, or you can click on the link below for a Smart Referral.

At this meeting, Dr Ward will speak to you about your medical history and answer any questions you may have.  She will give you information to take away and read to help you prepare for surgery if it is required.

Please bring any relevant X-rays or other scans to this appointment along with your Medicare and private health insurance details.

Dr Ward’s clinic runs on time.  Please arrive early for your appointment.  The sensational Two Dads Coffee Shop is adjacent to waiting room to caffeinate you while you do any paperwork required.
