We are using Telehealth for all patients with respiratory illness including current COVID infection, those who are contacts of a case and for select other medical issues.
For those with access to camera and microphone/speakers, including smartphones and webcams attached to their home computers, Telehealth with video will be used via Zoom.
If a patient cannot access the above, we can offer telephone consults.
Existing patients of the practice can book Telehealth with Dr Vim Timba, online via HotDoc right now- click here
Requests for medical certificates, prescriptions and referrals can be readily provided by email or fax.
Telehealth is for ONE ISSUE per consult.
Your doctor may use Telehealth to provide you results or if appropriate, for a follow up of an existing medical issue. This will be at the doctors discretion.
The same fee structure that applies to face-to-face consults, applies also to Telehealth. This will be payable on completion of the Telehealth consult.
A medicare rebate is available for exisiting patients who have been seen face to face in the last 12 months. This is a Medicare rule.
