What can I expect at an appointment?

Initial appointment is usually 40-60 minutes. Melissa will collect a comprehensive health history from you. During this consult Melissa will ask you what your goals for your sexual wellbeng are and together a plan will be formulated. Many people bring their partners to this consult and this is encouraged. Follow up consults will depend on the nature of the issue and the treatment plan. You can also expect to be listened too, Melissa is passionate about getting to the whole story, she endeavours for all patients to leave appointments feeling as though they have been heard.

Do I need a referral?

You do not need a referral to see a Nurse Practitioner, self referral is all that is required. However if you have had surgery or have a complicated medical/treatment history, a letter from your specialist/GP with any helpful information is appreciated.

What happens if I need a prescription/further tests?

Melissa can provide you with  prescriptions if required  and order further tests if necessary. In the event you need to see a specialist Dr or surgeon she will refer to an appropriate person.

Will my GP/Specialist receive information about my consultation?

This is entirely up to you. Melissa will ask for consent to feedback information to your usual care givers, however if you refuse no correspondence will be given. If you agree a letter will be sent.

What happens if I am new patient

If you are email savvy you will be asked to complete a new patient form before your initial appointment however if not don’t worry you can complete at your first appointment. Remember you DO NOT need a referral from your GP to see Melissa (or any NP)to be eligible for the Medicare rebate.
