What should I expect during my first visit?

  • On arrival at your initial appointment you will be asked to complete a registration form and provide the referral letter from your GP or medical specialist. This is important to assist in assessing your individual needs and optimising your care. At the initial consultation you will meet with Dr Yu to discuss your problem and concerns. You may also be asked a number of questions as well to gain a better understanding of your condition. A physical examination is usually performed, which may include the use of office ultrasound. This is often followed by a discussion of your condition and the options of further care, which may include recommendations for further investigations or treatment. You are encouraged to ask questions and discuss any concerns throughout the consultation. If you wish to bring a supportive family member or friend, you are most welcome to do so.
