FAQs

How long will my initial consultation take with a Women’s Health Physiotherapist? We suggest you allow yourself an hour, however depending on the treatment your physio appointment may take longer.

Follow-up women's physio appointments can range from 3/4hr to an hour.  Roxanne will be able to discuss this with you at your appointment.

Do I need a Doctor’s Referral for Women’s Health? No you do not require a Doctor’s Referral, if you do have one please bring that along to your physio appointment.
