The charge for initial consultation is $180, payable by cash, cheque, credit or debit card at the time of consultation. Existing patients returning with a new referral note for a different problem, or after an extended period, will be charged $165 . The charge for subsequent consultations is $85. In most instances we are able to process your medicare claim for you. For DVA card holders, account will be sent direct to DVA. The account will be sent direct to workcover if you have an approved claim.

At the initial consultation Dr Kennedy will discuss information provided by your GP, investigations, history of the complaint and in conjunction with examination, make a diagnosis of your condition. Further investigations, and therefore consultation, may be required before the diagnosis can be confirmed.

If your consultation is about your knee, preferably wear shorts or a skirt to the consultation. If your consultation is about your hip, preferably wear shorts or trousers.

Once a diagnosis is confirmed, Dr Kennedy will discuss the best course of action to manage your condition. This frequently involves “conservative” measures such as physiotherapy, medication or bracing, rather than surgery. If surgery is recommended, Dr Kennedy will discuss the risks and benefits of the surgery and will arrange a mutually suitable date to proceed.
