What to expect at your appointment

Depending on why you have been referred, your appointment will usually consist of a consultation with the doctor as well as an examination. The examination may involve a number of procedures which the doctor will discuss with you. The majority of procedures we perform are claimable on Medicare.

Swallow Patients

Patients being assessed for swallow will need to bring the following foods to their appointment:

  • Sandwich (soft bread with butter/spread
  • Biscuit (hard/crumbly)
  • Diced fruit, for example SPC fruit in syrup
  • Smooth yoghurt
