Please send referrals to Belinda via fax on 03 8677 9556.
How user friendly are online appointments?
We use the program COVIU which is a medical telehealth platform. You don't need to download any apps or programs in order to use it. The client recieves an email with a link to the appointment the day before. All they need to do is click on the link at the time of their appointment and it will open in their web broswer on their computer or phone. It will ask for permission to access their camera/ microphone and ask them to accept some basic terms and conditions.
Do you offer telephone appointments?
Yes. Eligable medicare referrals can be provided via phone. Belinda will ask the client which medium best suits the client and their medical situation.

Yes, we have a home-based clinic located in Pakenham. We also offer personal training onsite.
