Making An Appointment To See Dr Vishnu Unnithan

I look forward to returning you to the best level of function possible.

What To Bring To Your Appointment

When you come for your appointment, please remember to bring the following:

  • Referral letter from your GP, family physician or other doctor if present.
  • Copies of operation records, medical records, X-rays, MRI’s, CT scans, bone scans, ultrasounds and so on from prior doctors visits that relate to your problem area (even if you have been told that they are normal).
  • If you have seen a physiotherapist, please bring a progress letter from the therapist if possible.
  • If you have had surgery elsewhere, please bring a copy of your operation report.
  • A list of all medications that you are currently taking and their doses.
  • A list of any known drug allergies and the symptoms you may have from taking these medicines.
  • Any medical information or reasons for admission to hospital.
  • Your health insurance information.

If not all the relevant information is available at the time of your appointment, this may cause a delay in your treatment. In addition, it may be necessary to repeat a study to complete your evaluation.

What To Wear

Please dress so that the body part you are having trouble with can be easily examined and/or X-rayed. If you are attending for a knee problem, please wear or bring shorts to your appointment. If you are having shoulder or elbow problems, please wear a singlet or a top that has few buttons.

Ladies, please ensure to be comfortable clothings, so that if any examination is needed, that could be easily performed.


Dear patients, it is our observation that many of the X-rays performed outside are not ordered by a specialist or of inadequate views and hence we may have to repeat them.

MRI / CT Scan reports and films

Please bring all your MRI / CT scan films along with the reports. Do not bring the reports alone. If you have any soft copy of the imaging studies, please bring them as well.
