Consultations:

To make a booking for a consultation or an emergency on the day appointment please contact our reception staff on 8584 7321.

Consultations are by appointment, 10-15 minutes each from 8.30am to 4.30pm weekedays.

On call emergency appointments consult from the Loxton Hospital weekdays.

We endeavour to run on time, however due to the unpredictable nature and complexities of each patient's problem, this is not always possible.

Our on call doctor is also responsible for managing any medical emergencies presenting to the Loxton Hospital. We regret that you may, at times, experience delays and appreciate your patience.

Ways you can help us run on time:

  • If you have more than one problem to be discussed, please request a double appointment.
  • If you believe you may take longer than 10-15 minutes to discuss your problem, please request a double appointment
  • Please book a separate appointment for each family member that needs to be seen.

If you are unable to keep your appointment please contact us as soon as possible, to enable us to minimize our waiting times and allow another patient to take your place.

Phone advice - is available and will usually be provided by one of our qualified nurses.

Home visits - are available in special circumstances.
