MEDICALS

Medicals are required for many areas of our private and business life.

Pre-Employment Medicals are sometimes required before starting a new job. Your prospective employer will generally provide you with the forms to be completed by the doctor. This type of medical can take up to 1/2 to 1 hour, depending on the complexity of the tests required. Please allow ample time for your appointment.

Insurance Medicals are required by Insurance Companies for persons seeking life insurnace. These requests are generally made by the insurance companies on behalf of the patient/client. In most cases the doctor receives the request by post, and does not require the patient to be present to complete. However, there will be times when patients are sent the forms and are requested to make an appointment to discuss the required information on the medical form in person with their usual doctor.

Insurance Medicals are charged to the Insurance Company, and do not involve payment from the patient.

If your employer / insurance company is to pay for the medical, please have the details with you and hand them to the reception staff on arrival for your appointment.

Adoption Medicals: When booking for this medical, ask the reception staff to book a 1/4 hr appointment with the nurse and then a 1/2 hr appointment with your doctor.
