Appointments>

Physiotherapy for both in/out patients in IGMH is begun with a doctors referral. Appointments and hence subsequent registration can be made via phone or in person at the physiotherapy desk.

If there are free slots available treatment can be started on that very day, if not patients will be queued, and called and told when their appointment is due.

Certain special cases such as patients suffering from nerve diseases, or those who need treatment post-surgery or following removal of a cast may not have to wait in a queue.

Memos will be made at the physiotherapy counter after treatment is received so that an appointment can be given for the next session.

Note
Patients are advised to bring X-rays, reports and all other relevant documents when coming for an appointment
