Dr Doneley’s rooms are located on-site in Brisbane Private Hospital.
All specialist consultations require a written referral from either your General Practitioner or another specialist. The referral needs to be brought with you on the day of consultation.
Please bring all other relevant information that you have also including previous Xrays/ scans/ test results as well as a list of your current medication.
It is helpful if you wear clothing that allows for ready examination of the relevant body areas. Shorts or loose fitting pants generally allow for easy examination of most lower limb conditions
The initial appointment involves an in depth discussion with Dr Doneley relating to the current problem as well as any past orthopaedic or general health issues. This is then followed by an examination and review of any available Xrays or test results. This information then allows for a diagnosis and treatment plan to be established. Initial appointments are given extra time to allow for this process and as such, attract a higher fee than subsequent appointments.
On occasion, Dr Doneley will require further information (such as further Xrays, scans or blood tests) in order to further evaluate your condition. As these investigations take some time to gather, a follow-up or review appointment may be required after these tests have been performed.
Follow-up appointments incur a lesser fee as they are usually more focused and shorter duration. Initial post-operative appointments following any surgical procedure incur no fee.
