We, at Dr Matthew Holland, want to ensure that your visit with us always exceeds your expectations. As such, we will work with you to make sure that you are seen in the most timely manner possible, even if that requires being seen the same day. We look forward to working with you to make you an appointment that is as convenient as possible.
Dr Holland is in his Newcastle consult rooms on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is available for appointments on those days. In addition to his Newcastle rooms, he offers fertility appointments in his Maitland consult rooms once a month. We do require a 24 hour advanced notice if you cannot make it to your scheduled appointment. Cancellations made within 24 hours of your appointment will incur a cancellation fee. If you have young children who will be accompanying you to your appointment, please try to bring another adult with you to sit with the children during your time.
