What you’ll need

Please bring a current referral from your General Practitioner or specialist. This provides Dr Cutbush with important information regarding your condition, and enables you to claim part of your consultation cost through Medicare. If you’re unsure if your referral is current, just check with the reception staff when booking. Also, if you’ve been advised by your physiotherapist or other allied health professional to see Dr Cutbush, you will still need a referral from your GP to claim through Medicare.

Specific items you’ll need to bring for your first appointment:

  • Referral from your GP
  • Medicare Card
  • Health Insurance Information (if applicable)
  • Any X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and any other information relevant to your condition
  • If you’ve had previous surgery with another doctor for your condition, please bring any information about that operation that could prove helpful
  • Workers compensation claim details, if applicable.
