In general, you are encouraged to schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss test results with your doctor.
Returning for your test results allows your doctor to explain how your results relate to your specific health status, answer any questions you may have, and collaborate with you on a tailored plan for ongoing care.
Why Schedule a Follow-Up Appointment?
Understanding Your Results: Test results can sometimes be complex, and interpretation may require professional expertise. Your doctor will take the time to explain your results in a clear and understandable manner, ensuring you are well-informed about your health.
Discussing Next Steps: Depending on your results, there may be recommended follow-up actions or further testing. Your follow-up appointment is an opportunity to discuss any necessary next steps, treatments, or preventive measures to optimize your health.
Addressing Concerns and Questions: Your health is a personal journey, and we recognize that you may have concerns or questions about your results. Your doctor can address any worries, provide additional information, and offer guidance on maintaining or improving your well-being.

Notifications for Test Results
Warrandyte Road Clinic has partnered with Hotdoc to provide an SMS notification service, so you can receive an alert if your doctor wishes to discuss your results with you.
How It Works
If your doctor has reviewed your test results and needs to discuss your results with you, our system will automatically send you a secure SMS notification. The message will link to Hotdoc’s secure online patient portal where you can book a phone or face-to-face appointment to discuss your results.
