About your appointment

Your first appointment may last between 30 or 60 minutes. You may be asked to complete a questionnaire about your general health, and then you will have the opportunity to explain your problem. Finally you will be asked to remove your outer clothing so the problem area can be examined (you will never be asked to remove your underwear). You may wish to wear/bring loose fitting shorts or a vest top.
