“What do I bring to my appointment?”
All new patients require a referral letter from their GP.
Please bring a list of medications you are taking, and also any x-rays or scans you may have had for your condition.
Many people find having a close friend or relative with them at the appointment can be helpful and comforting.
“What can I expect at my consultation?”
Dr Lachlan Maddock will ask about your symptoms and medical history. He will perform a physical examination and bedside tests. It may be necessary to do some further investigations (blood tests or scans) to accurately assess and treat your condition.
A letter and reports will be sent to your GP to keep them informed of your health issue.
“I haven’t got private health insurance. Can I still make an appointment?”
Dr Lachlan Maddock is happy to see non-insured patients. He is a consultant Vascular Surgeon at Box Hill hospital and Monash Health and can arrange for treatment in these public hospitals if needed.
