Your First Visit

Your 1st visit at SHORE for WOMEN is an important consultation. For obstetric and gynaecological patients, the 1st visit will include a detailed medical, surgical and obstetric history and, usually, a physical examination. For women attending for specialist ultrasound, the 1st visit will require review of your previous obstetric imaging and a detailed ultrasound scan by Dr. Walsh.

In most cases, your 1st visit with us will last 30-40 minutes, although consultation times may be longer for women with complex medical histories.

We suggest you bring the following to your 1st visit:

  • A valid referral from your GP, to allow claiming of the Medicare rebate
  • Your Medicare and private health fund membership cards
  • Any prescription medications you are currently taking
  • Copies of any previous pregnancy ultrasound scans or blood tests
  • Copies of any previous operation reports (for gynaecological referrals)
  • A list of questions you wish to discuss
  • FRANZCOG
  • Mater Hospital
  • North Shore Private Hospital
  • The University Of Sydney
  • Royal College Of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
