Appointments & Fees

To improve our medical consultations with all our patients, the GP’s at Somerville Doctors now use a pre-consultation questionnaire (completed by the patient) called BetterConsult, that gives your doctor an improved understanding of the reason for your visit.

How does the BetterConsult questionnaire benefit you?

  • It allows your doctor a more comprehensive insight into your medical condition/s and related health factors
  • It allows your doctor to spend more time with you talking about treatment options
  • Allows you to document your health concerns – Ensure you cover all your conditions/ailment during the consult
  • Improved privacy when answering questions about your health.

Ask reception to learn more about BetterConsult and how it can help you and your doctor during your appointment.

What to bring to your appointment

Please remember to bring the following to your appointment:

  • Medicare, DVA or Seniors Card.
  • List of any medications and supplements you are taking.
  • Copies or reports from any recent tests that may be relevant to your condition.
  • You are always welcome to bring a support person with you.
  • New Patients – Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out the necessary paperwork.

If you need to discuss more than one health issue it may be best to book a long consultation. Please enquire at time of booking if you are unsure.
