Brisbane Medical Experience

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, below is my Brisbane medical experience at the ANZAC Square Medical Centre, hopefully this will help someone in future:

 

I booked my medical once I had my case number, over the phone. I was required to make a $100 deposit upon booking, and paid another $505 on the day.

 

The medical centre is located near Central station and ANZAC Square (280 Ann St, Brisbane). On arrival I was to produce a urine sample and hand over my vaccination record, passport, and 6 Australian sized passport style photos. Once I gave all that to the receptionist I sat in the waiting room until the doctor was ready. I was called in and the doctor went through a list of health questions, so if you've had any health issues you will speak about it then. The doctor also asked about any hospitalisations, I brought a letter from my doctor outlining a hospitalisation and all was fine. The doctor checked general stuff like temperature, blood pressure, reflexes, heart rate, breathing, etc. You'll be required to get down to underwear.

 

Vaccinations I had proof of (which meant I was all up to date and didn't need to get any administered at the medical):

- tdap

- mmr

- verbal confirmation that I've had the chickenpox

 

The doctor labelled the urine sample and sent me out with it and some x-ray and pathology referrals to the receptionist. Subsequently, the receptionist explained how to get to Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology at Manor Apartments on Queen st and CitiScan on Queen st. I went to the pathology first to hand in the urine sample and for a blood test, the pathology was easy to find. CitiScan is located on Queen Street Mall near Zara and Vapiano. You walk into the section which has Vapiano and go up the elevator to level 2.

 

Overall it took around 2 hours from start to finish, it would have been less but I was looking in the wrong place for CitiScan for 20 minutes. The doctor was friendly and it was overall not stressful (other than my inability to follow a map lol).

Addition: a week later I received a yellow envelope in the mail which included the DS-3025 (vaccination sheet signed by the panel physician) with a note stating to make copies of it, so I immediately scanned it. The envelope also included the x-ray disc.
