If you would like to book a phone consult, you can do so via our website www.mainstreetmed.com.auor call our practice during business hours. You can also switch your face to face appointment to a phone consultation but you will need to phone to make this change. Please make sure you qualify per the criteria above.
Obviously there are limitations on what can be done via a phone consult. Please ensure we have your correct phone details too. At this stage, this service is only available for GPs and not our visiting specialists.
