Appointments

Australian Doctors Clinic Kenmore runs an appointment system. You can make an appointment by contacting the practice by phone or booking online. We also offer Walk-in appointments.

  • 10 Minutes – Standard Appointment
  • Up to 20 Minutes – Long Appointment

Please inform reception staff when booking if you may require a long appointment. If you have any forms which need to be completed, please also advise reception as this may require a private fee.

Each appointment is for one person. If you have other family members who require medical attention, please make a separate booking for them, or book a double appointment.

Australian Doctors Clinic Kenmore aims to adhere to appointment schedules; however, the unpredictable nature of a medical practice means that doctors sometimes run behind time. This is mostly due to a patient requiring urgent medical attention. We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused to patients when we fall behind with our appointment schedule.

We would really appreciate it if you no longer need your appointment to please call and cancel so another patient can book the appointment.

Test Results, Repeat Prescriptions, Referrals

In order to monitor your health and fulfil our ethical and legal responsibilities, we require that you attend your doctor in order to receive all results, scripts or referrals. Our receptionists are unable to provide you with your results over the phone.

If your doctor is unavailable, another doctor in the practice would be happy to see you to help with your request.

Recall and Reminder System

Committed to preventative care, your doctor will seek your permission to be included on our reminder system.

Routinely, we may issue you with a reminder notice offering you preventative health care services appropriate to your condition; such as diabetic care, cervical screening, asthma care, aged care assessments, immunisations and health assessments.

If you do not want to be part of this scheme, please let your doctor or reception staff know.

Communication Policy

It is our practice policy that doctors do not take phone calls from patients or return patient’s phone calls. If a patient needs to speak to a doctor, they must make an appointment to come in and see their preferred doctor.

Reception staff are happy to put forward requests; however, it is at the doctor’s discretion in how they choose to proceed.

Disability Facilities

This practice is designed for wheelchair access. We have a wheelchair available if required. Should you have special needs, please discuss them with your doctor.

Car Parking
