What happens during a clinic consultation?
This is similar to a Video Consultation. Each new patient consultation session last for 30 minutes with a follow up session for 15 minutes. Each session follows a structured process to ensure efficiency and safety.
NEW PATIENT CONSULTATION
We introduce to each other by confirming you name, age and occupation.
This is what you tell us – the current problem that you are concerned about and what prompted you to book the appointment.
History of Presenting Complaint
This is get more information on your current problem. For example in a back pain problem, Mr Rajesh will ask about the site of the pain, when it started, how long was the duration of pain, is the pain associated with any leg pain, pins and needles or numbness, what makes your pain better or worse and finally how bad is your pain on the score of 1-10.
Past Medical History
Details of your relevant past medical problems will be very useful to ensure that the treatment is safe. For example, if you are taking any blood thinning medications or have diabetes, it is very important that we plan your treatment accordingly.
This follows a sequence with a General examination, Neurological examination and Special Tests.
