During your initial visit, the doctor will explain the specific test or procedure you need and help you visualize the results and go over the risks. A physical examination may also be required.

What should I expect during first visit?
Do I need a referral to make an appointment?
Most medical specialists will accept only referred patients. This is partly to try to ensure that the specialist you are seeing is appropriate for you and your condition, and also because Medicare pays higher rebates for specialist services if you have been referred.
