What about your fees?
We have Bulk Billing clinics and private clinics for urodynamics testing. When making your appointment the best appointment will be made for you. At the private clinics we No–Gap bill directly to your health fund. Any day hospital costs are your responsibility. Please check individual centre billing arrangements on our locations page.
What should I expect during my visit?
Dr Lander will consult with you prior to your urodynamics test. He will ask you about your symptoms and your medical history. Dr Lander will explain the test as it is being conducted. He will dictate a report back to your specialist/referring doctor during you appointment.
What is the procedure?
A patient information leaflet will be posted to you with your appointment date and time and the address of the clinic your appointment is booked at. The leaflet will also have a brief outline of the urodynamics procedure that is to be undertaken. Please take the time to read this brochure so you are informed.
Is there an anaesthetic?
As the urodynamics test needs to be undertaken to reflect your normal daily behaviour. No anaesthetic is used as it could possibly alter your symptoms.
How long will the urodynamics test take?
The test takes between 45-60 minutes. Some patients may take longer than others and Dr Lander tries to meet these requirements.
Does my GP get a copy of the Urodynamic report?
A copy of the report will be sent to the referring doctor and your GP. Reports are typed on most occasions on the day and sent by either post, fax or electronically immediately.
Are my medical records kept private and confidential?
Your medical file is handled with the utmost respect for your privacy. Our staff are bound by strict confidentiality requirements as a condition of employment regarding your medical records. Dr Lander abides strictly by the Privacy Act.
