To Make an Appointment
Please call Rochelle or Kelly on 02 9477 7607.
You will need a referral from your GP to see Dr De Silva.
Your First Appointment
Dr De Silva will ask you about several things, to get a proper idea of your condition:
- Your medical history
- What is bothering you, and for how long
- Any medications you are taking
- Any test results or examinations
- Any previous operations you have had
She will also take a close look at you, which may include:
- Examining the pulses in your legs or arms
- Examining the carotid arteries in your neck
- Examining your abdomen
- Examining your feet
After the examination, Dr De Silva will explain the situation and discuss the options. Sometimes you may need some further tests to find more information.
When your appointment is finished you will be asked to pay your account. We will give you a Medicare receipt for you to claim back.
We understand that sometimes there is simply too much information to take in at once, If you find that you have more questions after the appointment, please call us and we will happily answer them.
