Doctor attendance times vary and they may not necessarily be in attendance at 7.30am. Please check with reception in advance for Doctors attendance times.
APPOINTMENTS – We recommend appointments as this allows the doctors to organise their services in a more timely and predictable manner. To make an appointment contact us by phone on (02) 4683 0800 or come in to the medical centre and talk to our receptionists. Our appointment slots are at 10 minute intervals so please advise our staff should you require a longer appointment or more than one family member requires an appointment at the same time. Alternatively, you can make an appointment online via Hotdoc or via our website.
Doctors will always attempt to be on time but unpredictable circumstances can arise that may result in delays for patients with appointments. We ask that you please be understanding if these circumstances arise. The reception staff will inform you if the doctor you are seeing is running late.
Emergencies will be triaged by our nursing staff, so please tell reception if you have chest pain, difficulty breathing, eye trauma or are having an allergic reaction. We are happy to see patients who have not made an appointment. However, estimated waiting times can vary depending on how full the appointment schedules are, the number of emergencies there are or if a doctor is unable to attend for unforeseen circumstances. Some days walk-ins can be seen quickly, other days there are delays. Tahmoor Medical Centre management always tries to provide sufficient doctors to meet times of unpredictable and heavy demand for doctor services. We thank you for your patience in advance.
