“You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle.”
— Julian Seifter
How We Can HelpAustralian researchers found that people with depression respond positively to web-based cognitive behavioural therapy (www.moodgym.anu.edu.au) and evidence-based information website at www.bluepages.anu.edu.au, both developed at Centre for Mental Health Research at the Australian National University in Canberra. Internet interventions might be as effective as direct contact. The websites were particularly useful to patients who would only seek help if they could be anonymous.
Appointments are essential. Usually 15-minute appointments are allocated. If you require a longer appointment, please inform the receptionist when making your booking. In the exception of an emergency, if we are not informed that you require a longer appointment it may be necessary to make another appointment to deal with all your problems.
We try to run on time but this is not always possible and we apologise for any delay. We also encourage patients to ring ahead of their appointment to check the doctor’s progress, we understand your time is important. We do keep a few appointments available for urgent problems each morning and afternoon.
Please advise the receptionist if more than one person in your family needs to be seen, as more than one appointment time is usually required.
Complete medical checkups, insurance, aviation medicals, driving, pre- employment medicals and surgical procedures will always require a longer appointment. Please advise what type of medical you need performed when booking.
