You can book online, or alternatively call 03 4225 8000 and one of our lovely receptionists will assist you.

We do our best to accommodate patients who have conditions requiring a sooner appointment, for example a pre-operative appointment where a surgery date is near, or where a pregnancy related lower back or pelvic pain is preventing the ability to walk or get around.

Please contact us on 03 4225 8000 or email info@geelongpelvichealth.com.au for assistance with this. If your matter is not urgent however you would like an appointment sooner than the one you have booked, please call us and we can add you to our waitlist in the event of a cancellation.

No. Many of our patients have a GP or specialist referral but it is not necessary.

Your initial appointment will usually be 40-60 minutes long. This allows plenty of time to discuss your concerns and goals, as well as to conduct any assessments required, education and discussing your home management plan. If relevant, you may be offered an internal vaginal or rectal assessment, or real time ultrasound assessment, to assess your pelvic floor muscles. You do not have to undergo these assessments if you do not wish to, and we can discuss alternative options as required.

If you have a referral, results from any investigations or a medication list, these can be useful to bring along. You do not need to wear any particular type of clothing – whatever you feel comfortable in.

Our Physiotherapists work exclusively in the field of Pelvic Floor and Continence rehabilitation, as well as Musculoskeletal/Physical conditions during pregnancy and postnatally. All Physiotherapists have Post Graduate Qualifications in these fields.

Payment of your account is to be paid in full on the day of your consultation and the rebate can be obtained by taking your receipt into your health insurer or claiming online.

For telehealth appointments, payment will be taken at the time of the consultation via credit or debit card via a secure payment gateway within the telehealth platform.

Private Health Insurance: You can claim through your private health fund extras. Payment of your account is to be paid in full on the day of your consultation and the rebate can be obtained by taking your receipt into your health insurer or claiming online.

Medicare: Physiotherapy is not covered under Medicare although you may be eligible for an Enhanced Primary Care / Chronic Disease Management program. Speak with your GP regarding this. The rebate only covers a portion of the consultation, so there will be some out of pocket expense.

You cannot claim your consult through Medicare AND Health Insurance. Only one form of rebate is allowed.
