Prepare for your visit
We wish to make your experience with us a positive one.
We advise that you wear loose and comfortable clothing when you see your doctor- in most cases there will be a need to do an ECG or a physical examination. Wearing a button up shirt is advisable. Our clinic is air-conditioned, so feel free to bring a jacket or cardigan.
If you are having a Stress Echocardiogram, please wear comfortable shoes and clothes as you will be on the treadmill.
Allow at least 1.5 hours for your appointment. Although we aim to run on time, delays may occur.
Please be aware that Dr Sinnya deals with medical emergencies, and as such may be interrupted by urgent phone calls from other doctors or the Hospital. While we do endeavor to stick to your appointment time, your patience and understanding in case of unexpected delays is sincerely appreciated. Feel free to bring a book or iPad to keep yourself occupied.
If you have never been a patient of our Practice before, our friendly receptionists will ask you who your referring doctor is and who your usual GP is (often your usual GP is also the referring doctor), whether you have a referral, and questions about your relevant previous medical conditions, treatment and testing.
Please ensure that you bring with you:
- Your referral letter.
- Your Medicare Card.
- Your private health fund details.
- A list of the medications you are currently taking, their frequency and doses.
- Your pacemaker ID card, if you have one of these devices implanted.
- The results of any previous heart tests or procedures that you have had in the past and any letters from previous heart specialists you have seen, if they are in your possession.
Tip: It is a good idea to carry an up to date small list of current medications with you in your wallet.
Please contact our friendly reception staff on 5478 4829 to enquire about fees. Please inform our staff known if you are a pensioner.

Cancellation/ No Show Policy
We understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to emergencies or obligations for work or family. However, when you do not call to cancel an appointment, you may be preventing another patient from getting much needed treatment.
If an appointment is not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance you will be charged cancellation fee; this will not be covered by your insurance company.
