Please read over some of our most asked questions
What other procedures are performed in your consulting rooms?We have a dedicated procedure room where Dr Kliman can perform a vulvoscopy if there is a vulval or vaginal skin concern. If you require a colposcopy due to abnormal changes on a cervical screening test (previously known as a pap smear) this can also be performed in our office. If there are any abnormal areas that require further investigations, a biopsy may be taken under local anaesthetic. We can also insert intra uterine devices or insert an etonogestrel rod device in our procedure room. With all of these procedures, we understand that some women find this type of procedure intrusive. Patients are treated with care, dignity and respect. One of our experienced registered nurses will be present to assist Dr Kliman with these procedures and to offer the patient support and ensure that they are comfortable during and after the procedure.
What to expect at your first gynaecological appointment?At your initial consultation, a full medical and surgical history will be taken and current medication will be noted. You may be asked about relevant family history and questions about your fertility/ pregnancy history, your menstrual cycle, and your general health. Your current gynecological concerns or condition will be discussed. A medical examination may be needed to be performed. Depending upon your presenting symptoms, Dr Kliman may perform an ultrasound in his office, perform a breast and abdominal examination, check your blood pressure, arrange blood tests, perform a cervical screening test and discuss medication including the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy if indicated. Following this, Dr Kliman will have a comprehensive discussion about the treatment options available for your specific condition so that you can make an informed decision. This appointment will take approximately 30 minutes.
How long will I need to wait for an appointment to see Dr Kliman?We endeavour to see our patients as soon as possible in particular if you have any of the listed conditions;
- Post-menopausal bleeding
- Severe heavy menstrual bleeding
- High grade abnormal cervical screening test
- Acute pelvic pain
- Vulval and vaginal skin conditions
Do I need a GP referral to see Dr Kliman?A GP referral is required by Medicare to ensure that patients are seeing the correct provider for their particular condition. This way you are entitled to a Medicare rebate. Most GP referrals will last for 12 months unless otherwise specified on the referral by the GP. Specialist referrals only last for three months. However, if you do not wish to provide a GP referral, you can still see Dr Kliman but you will not be able to claim a refund from Medicare..
Are my medical records kept private and confidential?Your medical records are handled with the highest respect for your privacy. They will not be released to a third party without your signed consent. We endorse very strict confidentiality requirements concerning your medical records.
