Face to Face Spine Consultations

What happens during a Face to Face consultation?

Face to Face Appointment takes place in a hospital or a clinic with a prearranged appointment. You will be given an opportunity to have a telephone or a video consultation. However in certain instances where a telephone or video consultation may not be very appropriate.
