Heart Rx Cardiology

As a precautionary measure, to help slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we ask our patients of Heart Rx Cardiology to practice social distancing.

If you are sick, stay away from others – that is the most important thing you can do.

Please do not enter Heart Rx if you are unwell. Please call ahead to reschedule or arrange an alternative consultation.

If you are well and are attending the rooms for an appointment, we ask that you please come alone. Non-essential friends and family will be asked to wait elsewhere, to maintain social distancing requirements.

During an echocardiogram we will only permit the patient alone in the examination room with the sonographer.

We are also transitioning our staff to working from home most of the time and we ask you direct your query to reception@heartrx.com.au or nurse@heartrx.com.au unless it is about your appointment within the next 48 hours.

We thank you for your understanding during these difficult events.
