Initial Consultation

Initial Consultation

To book a consultation, please contact our practice manager Sabrina on  (02) 9517 2020 or contact us here.

You will need a referral from your General Practitioner to be able to claim a Medicare rebate from the consultation fee. This may be faxed or emailed to us.

You may still attend without one, but you will not be able to claim your Medicare rebate due to Medicare's guidelines.

During the initial appointment with Dr Pulitano, you will have a physical examination and detailed information about your condition. 

Dr. Pulitano will give you his expert opinion and what treatment option he suggests. You may decide as early as on the day of, or later on if you need to think about your next step. Whether it be surgery or follow up options depending on your condition.

Operating in both Public and Private Hospitals, Dr. Pulitano caters for all patients specific needs.

Please bring with you:

 

  • Your Medicare card

  • Private Health care card

  • Any pension or health care cards from NSW Government

  • Any relevant imaging and pathology results

  • A list of your current medications

  • If you have had surgery before it is helpful to bring the contact details of your previous surgeon

  • If you have any significant medical conditions and see other specialists or doctors for these, bring as much information as you can as it may be relevant in planning for surgery

  • If you cannot speak English well and need help understanding or explaining yourself, bring along a relative or friend who can translate for you (alternatively let us know when booking your appointment and we can arrange an interpreter for the appointment.)

  • A list of any questions you may have
