Phone/Video Consultations

During this time of heightened community concern regarding COVID-19, The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre is adapting in order to keep looking after the health of our patients.

All of our Practitioners are offering phone/video (Telehealth) consultations. When you have booked a Telehealth consultation, be aware that your Practitioner will ring you as close as possible to your appointment time. Please ensure you are available to take the call. Also please note that the call may come from a ‘blocked’ number as the practitioner may be calling from their personal mobile, or from their home phone. They may also be trying to reach you after hours regarding results.

Sports Doctors & General Practitioners

All of our medical Practitioners are available for Telehealth consultations. The majority of our medical Practitioners are available for in person consultations. However, if your regular Practitioner is currently unable to offer in room consultations and you would prefer an in room consultation, please contact our Administration team to discuss who would be the most suitable Practitioner for you to see.

The fees for Telehealth consultations with our medical Practitioners are listed here. Appointments for both Telehealth and in person consultations with our medical Practitioners can be scheduled here.

Allied Health Practitioners

Our Allied Health team of Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Dietitians/Nutritionists and Myotherapists/Remedial Massage Therapists are also offering Telehealth consultations.

Many private health funds are offering a rebate for Physiotherapy Telehealth consultations. Please contact your private health fund regarding the rebates available to you.

The fees for Telehealth consultations with our Allied Health Practitioners are listed here. Appointments for both Telehealth and in room consultations can be scheduled here.
