WHAT WE DO

Conditions assisted by Rehabilitation Medicine include:

Neurological conditions

Rehabilitation following stroke or multiple sclerosis diagnosis is recommended for individuals to regain their maximum range of abilities.

Cognitive Impairment

Struggling with daily tasks can be very difficult.

Rehabilitation may enhance your cognitive abilities and improve your quality of life.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Rehabilitation following traumatic brain injury is a particular area of interest for Dr Braid.  She is experienced in return to work and return to driving programs, and referral for neuropsychological testing. She sees people covered by insurance and Workcover. 

We bill through Medicare for all Rehabilitation Medicine consultations.

For Medicare rebates, patients need to provide a GP or specialist referral letter. Insurance cover (eg iCare) and Workcover referrals are accepted.
