In order to make an appointment with a heart doctor you need to have a letter of referral from your general practitioner or referring specialist which must be provided at the time of your appointment.
All private consultations require a referral from either a specialist (referral lasts 3 months) or a GP (referral valid for 12 months), and, in order to claim a rebate from Medicare, a up-to-date referral is essential and the patients responsibility.
To see our clinical psychologist patients need a mental care plan.
For enquiries please call 1300 MHEART (1300 643 278) Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 5.00pm.
While we have access to a free telephone interpreting service, we encourage non-English speaking patients to contact us before their appointment so we can confirm a telephone interpreter in readiness for their appointment. Please call us on 1300 MHEART (1300 643 278) to discuss.
A number of our consultants speak languages other than English, including Arabic, Cantonese, Chinese, Hakka, Hokkien, Hebrew, Malay, Mandarin, Persian (Farsi), Sinhalese and Tamil. Their details can be found by using the search options of the specialist directory.
