If you’re not convinced that booking online is the way to go we’ve put together a few reasons why you should make the switch.

So, why do we think you’ll love booking health appointments online?

It’s fast and easy
One click and you can see all the available appointments in your local area. That’s more choice to find a time and place that’s right for you.

No more hold music
A practice is a busy place and chances are you’ll be put on hold when making an appointment on the phone. Booking online means no more daggy on hold music but more importantly it means you will be saving time.

No need to wait until the practice is open
Have you woken at 11pm feeling awful knowing you need to go the doctors? Well you can jump online in your pj’s and book an appointment the next day. No need to wait until the practice opens.

You’re not rushed to make a decision on the spot
No need to juggle your calendar with the receptionist on the other line. You have time to think and select from a range of appointments and decide which best suits you.

You can book on the go
The HealthEngine app allows you to book from your smartphone/IPAD. In bed, on the train, at your desk at work. Where ever you are you can book instantly.

A better healthcare experience
Booking online means the reception staff have more time for you when you arrive at the practice. They’re not trying to juggle phone bookings with patients that are currently at the practice. This makes the visit to the doctors a better experience for you and actually helps the reception team as well.

HealthEngine is Australia’s largest online booking system with 600,000 patients visiting our site every month to find health practitioners. We don’t just have bookings on the site, we also provide a range of information to help you make a decision about which doctor to see. There’s a detailed profile of each practice, you can search easily for bulk billing practices, see doctor profiles, see comments and feedback from patients that have visited the practice, and more.
