Welcome to Lakeside Specialist Breast Clinic! We care about you and your concerns and will endeavour to provide you with the best possible advice, treatment and support.
Most often you will see one of the surgeons at your first visit. Depending on your individual circumstances, you may then see one or several of the other team members for further treatment and support. If needed, you may also be referred to another specialist in our broad network of medical practitioners. All breast cancer cases will be discussed at our weekly multidisciplinary meetings.
You’ll need a referral from your GP or other doctor so that we know who to communicate with regarding your treatment and so that you can claim back some of the fees from Medicare. Please bring all relevant scans, x-ray films and biopsy results to your first visit.
You’ll find a lot of information about the services we provide in the section ‘our services’. Here are some links to other websites with information you might find helpful:
