Appointments

Consultations at Richmond Medical are by appointment only 

  • A typical appointment is allotted 15 minutes
  • Double appointments are available if you feel more time will be required, and are generally advised for situations such as Pap Smears, multi-country travel vaccinations, and Medicare Psychologist referrals
  • Our doctors always endeavor to run to time. Please understand that if there is a delay, it is usually due to an unexpected complexity in preceding consultations

Cancellations

Cancelling appointments is totally understandable. We ask that you call the clinic at least 2 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. This then allows other patients to utilize that appointment time.

Childhood Immunisations

Childhood immunisations are provided by our Practice Nurse on Monday through Fridays. Appointments with our nurses can be made over the phone. Visits to the nurse are bulk-billed to Medicare. The immunisation record is automatically sent electronically to the Government immunisation register.

Patient Results

Your doctor may arrange for you to have blood tests or medical imaging. In most circumstances we require patients to make a return appointment to discuss results personally. Not only is this a safe approach, but it ensures we are able to maintain a high standard of medical care.

South Yarra Medical

Richmond Medical is affiliated with nearby South Yarra Medical. You patient record is available to the staff at both clinics. Many of our GPs work at both Richmond Medical and South Yarra Medical. If an appointment is unavailable at Richmond Medical, our reception staff are very happy to check for availability at South Yarra Medical.
