We are happy to hear from you. Please contact us using the information below

We are are open Monday to Friday (except Holidays) between 9:00am to 5:00pm. As a Specialist clinic, patients need referral from their General Practitioner, family physician or other doctor to be eligible for a rebate from Medicare.
Dr. Brooks generally runs on time so please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your appointment to fill in a health questionnaire and supply your personal details. If you are late it may not be possible for you to be seen that day in order to avoid inconveniencing other patients.
When you come for your appointment please remember to obtain and bring the following:
- Referral letter from GP, family physician or other doctor
- Medicare card, DVA card, Pension Card
- Have your Private Hospital Insurance information with you
- Reports, X-rays, MRI's, CT scans etc and any other relevant information
You may also arrange to have the records sent to us prior to your appointment.
Very often during the course of your evaluation or treatment for an orthopaedic condition your doctor will require x-rays to determine the cause of a problem or to evaluate your progress. If not all the relevant information is available at the time of your appointment this may cause a delay in your treatment. In addition it may be necessary to repeat a study to complete your evaluation.
Please dress so that the body part you are having trouble with can be easily examined and/or X-rayed. For example, please wear shorts if you are attending for a knee problem.
If you need to cancel an appointment
Telephone the office during business hours and allow at least 1 day's notice so that we can offer your appointment time to patients on our waiting list.
We recognise that your time is valuable, and we make every effort to run on time. Occasionally emergencies or patients require a little more time, and these cause scheduling delays beyond our control. We apologise if we keep you waiting.
