Our clinic is in the Murdoch Clinic at St John of God Hospital in Murdoch, and our staff take pride in delivering friendly efficient service. When you arrive, please inform the clinic staff. You will need your referral, and you will be asked to fill in an information sheet if you have not undertaken this before your appointment.
Please arrive on time as we always try to be prompt. Delays sometimes occur, due to patients with complex problems requiring more time than expected, or emergency patients. The most common reason for running behind is patients attending late and therefore causing the clinic to run late, so again we would be grateful if you could attend on time, please. At times a full complement of staff, including Mr Jarrett, his nurse and his therapists are attending to patients, and it may appear to you that a patient who has arrived later is seen before you are. Bear in mind that we can have three clinics running at once and other patients are not jumping ahead of you.
We try to ensure your visit runs as smoothly as possible. However, your consultation time may vary depending on whether you require x–rays, casts, splints, and other therapies, and also upon any unplanned medical delays. If you live a considerable distance from Murdoch, it may be possible that your follow-up appointment can be conducted via a video link either from your local hospital, General Practitioner or your computer, Tablet or Smartphone using apps like FaceTime/ Skype/ Scopia. If applicable, we will suggest this as an option to you, but do feel free to ask.
