Standard appointments are 15 minutes
It is usually only possible to deal with one problem in that time. If you think you will need longer, please book a longer appointment which may incur an extra fee. It is very helpful if you can tell us whether your appointment is for a particular need such as ACC, insurance medicals, contraception, etc so they can be fitted in appropriately. For long term medical problems and non- urgent appointments you may need to book several weeks ahead.
At times we may run late due to an emergency or a patient requiring a longer time, and we ask for your understanding. Please, if you are running late, call us. We encourage you to have your own doctor at the medical centre to get the best management of your health needs. However for urgent issues you can see one of the other doctors who will have access to your medical record.
