More involved consultations such as care plans, mental health plans, RTA paperwork, work medicals, pap smears and complex or multiple medical problems will require a longer appointment.

No. FHC requires patients to attend in person for scripts and referrals.
Medical certificates are issued during your consultation with the Doctor. These cannot be backdated, so please attend the practice sooner rather than later.
Your Doctor will usually give you a time frame in which to book a follow up appointment to go over your test results in person. In most cases, the Doctor will prefer to see you in person rather than call you with results (there are a few exceptions in the cases of INRs etc). If you do not already have a follow up appointment, please call the practice after a week to book one.
