Dr Blanks COVID-19 General Statement

Last updated: Thursday 13th October 2022
Here at Dr Blanks we pride ourselves on excellent patient care and patient safety.  The current COVID-19 pandemic is ever changing and we are ensuring that our clients and the community are our number one priority during these testing times.
Please note: if you have tested positive to covid 19 in the week leading up to your appointment, we ask that you kindly inform our medical staff and to reschedule your appointment to the following week. We thank you for your understanding.
All patients will be required to wear a face mask across all our sites. Exemptions from wearing a mask will only be permitted with a supporting letter from your GP. This is to ensure that all precautions are taken to keep all other patients and staff safe 
Our precautions:
Our St Kilda Road Clinic in Melbourne is a private vasectomy clinic dedicated at seeing clients for vasectomies only. This clinic does not accept walk-in patients. All patients are screened before being granted access to the suite waiting room.
The Campbellfield, Frankston and Bendigo procedural rooms will only be dedicated to vasectomy patients. These clinics will not have patients in attendance who are seeking assistance with infective/cold like symptoms or suspected COVID-19 testing.
Are appointments still going ahead?
Currently, procedural times and pre-consultations are still going ahead as scheduled. If you would like to move your procedure to a later date, call our rooms 1800 252 657 and we can arrange this.
Who will have their appointments postponed?
All clinics across all sites will not accept clients with:
  • An active COVID-19 infection.
  • Clients who have been in contact with a person who has had confirmed COVID-19
  • People who are experiencing any viral infective symptoms such as fever, sore throat, cough, fatigue, aches and pains or shortness or breath. Please let your GP know if you are experiencing these symptoms and stay at home until you receive medical advice.
  • Clients who have travelled overseas in the last 14 days. If you have arrived back to Australia in the last 14 days you must self isolate for 2 weeks even if you have no symptoms.
Please note that our interstate patients are advised to take note of their official state government regulations before travelling to Victoria as these are ever changing.
On behalf of the team here at Dr Blanks we wish all our clients good health and to please keep safe during this otherwise stressful time. Remember to keep social distancing, maintain good hand hygiene and follow the latest information posted on the offical goverment website https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert.
