Book an Appoinment
Our practice operates an appointment system to minimise delays and inconvenience to patients.
If you require an imaging procedure please call Bridge Road Imaging on (03) 9242-4888 or our free call 1800 4 SCANS and arrange an appointment time. Patients without an appointment who require urgent attention are seen as soon as possible after discussion between the referring doctor, radiologist or practice.
However, in some instances specialised preparation is required and then an advanced appointment may be necessary.
Detailed patient instructions will be given by the reception staff when you phone to book an appointment. Please bring your Radiology referral/letter and any previous X-Rays/images with you on the day of your examination.
