Before Your Appointment

To help patients prepare for their appointment with Dr Perera, we have gathered the following resources. On this page you will find:

  • Patient forms you must download and complete prior to your first appointment
  • Two videos from Dr Perera which provide instructions on completing the forms and how to manage any medications prescribed during your appointment
  • Travelling instructions for patients who have a face-to-face appointment

Patient Forms

Below you will find the patient forms to download and complete prior to your first appointment. Please return via email, or print and retun via fax or post if you are unable to email.

  • Completing the Issues and Background (Form 2) saves time at the interview, expediting the process of arriving at a diagnosis and treatment plan, and potentially reducing the number of visits.
  • Have your GP complete the information required in the Tests (Form 3) form.
  • Have the Tests done in time so that the results will be available to me when you attend the interview.
  • Ask your GP add copy to me for results when the tests are ordered.
  • Please note, the forms are fillable PDF documents. To ensure we accurately record your details, use the ‘Save As’ function until you complete the forms and the ‘Save’ function when finished. If you use the ‘Export to PDF’ or ‘Print to PDF’ function, you will no longer be able to edit the forms and it will be harder to retrieve the information you have entered.

Thank you for completing these forms, it will make your sessions more productive.

If the information is not received at least one business day before the appointment, we may postpone your appointment to the next available date.
