Consultation and Assessment

Consultation and Assessment

Heart of Melbourne is owned and run by the cardiologists that consult with our patients, ensuring each and every patient is assessed and cared for to the highest standard. We offer face to face consults, an extensive telehealth network, and consistent, in-depth care, even extending to external specialists attending our clinics to consult with our patients.

Heart of Melbourne accepts all referrals for testing and consultations, including indefinite GP referrals to manage ongoing care in cases of life long cardiac issues. We endeavour to provide a bulk billing testing service wherever available, and offer substantial rebates on any out of pocket fees from consultations. Our team will be happy to discuss these fees at any time.

Through our secure network, Heart of Melbourne offer for you to fill in your registration form online, via a link to your mobile phone, which minimises waiting times in clinic, and assist us to run punctual appointments with minimal disruption to your day. Consultations can take up to 30 minutes with the cardiologist, and tests may be longer. We endeavour to offer you suitable appointment times with cardiologists available 6 days a week across our sites, and if you need to take time away from work to attend, we can offer you a medical certificate on request.

Heart of Melbourne cardiologists may suggest further investigations, and review appointments which can be booked on the day, or later on if necessary. An SMS reminder service is utilised throughout all our sites, to ensure you are kept up to date with your appointments and limit the need for cancellations or rescheduling, however our friendly team will be happy to assist you if the need arises.
