What will happen at your appointment

On arrival

Reception staff will collect your completed patient information form and then register you as a patient. We also welcome these completed forms faxed or electronically forwarded back prior to your appointment. You may be seen by the Cardiac Technician or Nurse first. You will then be seen by the doctor who will perform any further assessments required and discuss your condition and treatment options.

On departure

Reception staff will then create the account for your consult and any testing performed. Upon payment reception can electronically lodge the account/receipt with Medicare if you wish. Any review appointments that need to be made will be booked for you before you leave. If you have any questions or medical problems prior to your appointment please do not hesitate to contact Macquarie Heart as we would be happy to help you. Should you need to change or cancel an appointment please contact us as soon as possible to minimise any inconvenience.

We look forward to seeing you at your appointment.
