Your first consultation is important. It’s our chance to get to know you, fully understand your condition and how it affects you, and put together a management plan best suited to your situation.
Depending on the nature of your condition, you may be asked to complete one or more questionnaires. These are used to better understand your pain, how it affects your day to day functioning, and the impact your condition has from the psychological perspective.
Dr Bell will take a comprehensive history, and perform a physical examination. Part of the assessment may include a diagnostic ultrasound examination as well.
Feel free to bring a support person. A female chaperone is available if required as well.
