Do I need a referral from my doctor to see you?

As primary care practitioners, we do not require a referral to commence your care at Zebras.

Can you tell me about your triaging process?

Can you tell me about your triaging process?

Our intention is to connect you with the right service and the right practitioner at the right time, as we know how important this is.

So important we have appointed a role - with a background in healthcare, might we add - to receive and triage all new enquiries.

Our health liaison officer carefully considers your presentation, preferences, availability and financial circumstances where applicable. You’re more than welcome to be involved in this process by setting up a short discovery call with us.

What if I’m not ready for you when you call?

Can you tell me about your triaging process?

Timing is everything. If you’re not ready for us, you won’t lose your place in the queue. If there are no significant changes on your end, there’s no need to complete another enquiry. You’re welcome to contact us when you’re ready and we’ll do our best to accommodate your preferences.

Is there anyone else who can help me if Zebras can’t?

Can you tell me about your triaging process?

We have a growing list of like-minded organizations, practitioners and resources we may be able to direct you to explore.

Please note, our recommendations are based on the limited information we have which is generally not sufficient for a referral. For an official referral, we would strongly recommend attending a consultation with one of our practitioners.
