General Information

We will be in contact in the coming days to try to schedule an appointment for our current patients that are in treatment. If you have had a COVID vaccination, there is nothing more to do. However if you have not had a vaccination, please contact the practice as we may suggest you have a COVID test prior to your appointment.

If you are a NEW patient and believe that you have a pressing concern please contact us to make an appointment.

There have been multiple exposure sites in the South West. Let’s keep our community safe. Please adhere to NSW government regulations and if you have visited any of these hotspots to please isolate and get tested.
