Do I Need To Be Referred by My GP or Doctor?
What Happens At My Consultation?
At your first consultation, we will ask about all your problems, specifically related to your knee. We will examine your knee and any other relevant joints. Almost all new patients will require an X-ray which we do in our rooms. Please don’t go for X-rays somewhere else as we request specialised views that are not standard.
If you have already had X-rays or other investigations done somewhere else please bring them with. We will then decide, together, on a plan going forward.
What Should I Bring To My Consultation?
We also suggest that you bring some reading material. While we do attempt to run on time we do get unforeseen delays and occasionally you may have to wait. We do strive to give everyone our undivided attention when we consult with you.
