How will Jonathan treat your problem?

At the initial consultation, a history and understanding of the problem is gained and an examination is conducted. Special tests are then arranged – these may include X-rays or blood tests. As the St Kilda Road surgery is also a Medical Centre, some of these facilities are located within the building. If further tests are needed, such as biopsy, then this will be discussed. If possible, tests will be done at the time of the initial consultation. All treatments, including costs, will be discussed with you before proceeding. Review visits are an integral part of patient care and are very important for treatment outcomes.
