Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral to see a specialist doctor?

DOCTO recommends patients get a referral from their own GP wherever possible to ensure good follow-up care as DOCTO provides follow-up reports as requested.  This is not essential however as DOCTO can provide referrals as needed. This service, provided through DOCTO's 24/7 virtual Emergency Department, is important to people in regional and rural areas who may not have quick access to a doctor. It is also important as an after-hours service. CLICK HERE to see a doctor online for a referral.
