Injection therapies can be done at the Armidale Clinic while Laser and complex injection therapies are generally carried out in the Scarba Street Clinic. Other day procedures may be carried out at the Scarba Street Clinic or at Baringa Day Surgery. Any procedure requiring an overnight stay will be carried out at Baringa Private Hospital or Coffs Harbour Health Campus.
Follow Up Care
Follow up care required varies greatly from procedure to procedure. Immediate post operative care, once you return to Armidale, will be with the nurses at your GP’s office. Our patient care team will be available every day to answer questions and concerns that may arise on the telephone. Follow up appointments with Dr. Arianayagam will generally be held at Dr. Arianayagams’ office at the Rockvale Cardiac Centre, although occasionally patients will be required to visit the Scarba Street Clinic in Coffs Harbour to attend a follow up session.
We pride ourselves in “being there” for our patients. As mentioned above, our patient care team is only a phone call away if you have questions or concerns before or after your procedure. Where the situation warrants, Dr. Arianayagam is able to speak to patients over the phone to give reassurance regarding concerns.
