What communication can I expect from practitioners regarding patients?

Here at Doveston Body Concepts we provide efficient and timely communication for all referrals seen, and for all patient types (e.g. Veteran Affairs, Medicare, and WorkCover.)

After a patient’s initial consultation, a report summarising the findings and desired outcomes from the treatment will be written and sent to you as the referring medical practitioner. A follow up report will also be provided after a review consultation has taken place to ensure the patient is adhering to the prescribed treatment and you are made aware of the progress made and/or non-compliance shown by the patient. We also call you to discuss the progress of your patients throughout the treatment duration if required.

Please call Doveston Body Concepts Health Clinic on (07) 5495 7772 to discuss a patient or referral and/or email us on dbconcepts@live.com.au

We are authorised under WorkCover QLD, and the Motor Accident’s Insurance Commission (MAIC) QLD.

From an injury rehabilitation point of view, Exercise Physiology focuses on active treatments in a gym/clinic based setting to progress the strength and condition of the affected area/s and return the patient’s functional capacity. Exercise regimes are executed under the supervision of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist to ensure correct technique and performance is adhered to in order to achieve the right results. Physiotherapy provides more of a passive treatment during the acute stage of the intervention, whereas Exercise Physiology treats chronic, longer term conditions in clients and patients. Exercise Physiologists also specialise in the treatment of various chronic diseases, e.g. diabetes, heart disease and possess the knowledge and skills to manage and enhance quality of life for patients who present with these medical conditions.
