Neurologist Consultation

As a group practice of neurologists with extensive subspecialty expertise, we offer advice in all aspects of neurological disease.  Our neurologists are affiliated with teaching and private hospitals across Sydney, with admitting rights at Concord, Royal Prince Alfred and St George Hospitals.

We maintain urgent appointments for patients requiring rapid assessment if specifically requested by the referring doctor.   In general, a phone call or fax  / email with the reasons for urgency is required to allow us to prioritise individual patients.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST CONSULTATION?

You should allow approximately 40 minutes for you first Neurological assessment.  The average consult will take about 40 minutes however, each individual receives specialised treatment and as a result consultation times will vary from person to person.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?

You will need to bring a letter of referral from your GP or treating specialist. This referral means that you can then claim the full Medicare rebate for the cost of your consultation.  A referral also gives the Neurologist your general medical history.  If you are traveling from a regional area it is often useful to send us your referral in advance.  It is also necessary for you to bring any previous MRI films and reports you may have along with any previous pathology results. Please bring both the films/discs and the report, not just the report, and do not rely on a previous doctor who has the films to send them – bring them yourself to make sure they are there with you.
