Visiting the Department

Making Appointments

We see patients at the Out Patient Department (OPD) on Tuesdays, Wednedays, Thursdays and Fridays in the morning between 9.00am and 1.00pm and the evenings between 4.00pm and 6.30pm.

You can call us at 080-2206 5256 to fix up an appointment and allow us to prepare for your visit.

Unless you have an emergency it is best to visit the OPD mid-morning or early-evening to avoid the busy hours and breaks. Before coming for your appointment you will have to retrieve your Hospital Folder from the Medical Records Division (MRD) and pay the appointment fee.

Follow the Red Line to reach the PMR OPDThe PMR OPD is seperate from the main OPD Complex and is situated opposite to the Trauma Ward. To reach it you will have to follow the Red Line on the wall which starts at the MRD.

Our appointments are of several types. Initial evaluations may take up to an hour. Follow-up examinations generally take up to 30 minutes. Procedures, often scheduled in conjunction with therapy sessions, are usually brief. Therapy sessions take 30 to 60 minutes, depending upon the nature of the problem.

We are usually on schedule, however, due to the nature of our practice, we might be somewhat delayed. In such situation kindly bear with us.
