Appointments

Buranda Family Medical Centre runs an appointment system, however we do keep openings for emergencies.  You can make an appointment with your doctor by phoning the surgery on 07 3393 2757.  A standard appointment is for one patient with one simple problem.

When making an appointment please advise staff if your appointment is of a specific nature or you need a service that a nurse is required.  (ie. minor surgery or immunisation, dressing, or procedure, Mental Health Consultations etc. so the correct appointment length can be made.

We try to adhere to appointment schedules however the unpredictable nature of medical practice means the doctors sometimes run behind time.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience cause to patients when we fall behind with our appointment schedule.

**Fees may apply for all Walkin Visits **

To get the most out of the conversation with your doctor be open with the information you provide. If you do not understand something, ask your doctor to explain it again for you. Ask questions about your diagnosis, treatment and medications. When back at home, follow up on test results and make any other appointments that you need.

After your visit or appointment with your doctor

Once you get home from your appointment, there are things that you should do next. These include:

  • following up on test results – find out who you need to phone and when your results will be ready
  • making any other appointments that you have been told you need
  • making sure you know how to take your medication or treatment – if you cannot remember, ask your pharmacist (they may ring your doctor to check)
  • calling your doctor’s, clinic if you have more questions about your situation
