We operate a recall system to assist you in maintaining optimal health. We will send reminders via SMS reminder, phone call or letter when you are due for repeat examination or investigation.
We believe that investigation results should be communicated within an appointment. This allows for adequate explanation and discussion and further management to be planned.
It is advisable to make an appointment with your Doctor once you have had the investigation.
All results are received electronically so there is no need for you to bring them with you.
We will send an SMS or will telephone you if you have results to be discussed and have not made an appointment.
If there is an urgent need to discuss results you will be contacted by your Doctor.
