Dr Tomlinson is currently booked some months in advance so if your condition is urgent or you wish to be placed on our "Waiting for an Early Appointment" list to see Dr Tomlinson or Mr Babazadeh please provide us with your doctor's referral and your registration forms so that we can facilitate an urgent review. We strongly encourage individuals who are seeking non-surgical treatment of Dupuytren's contracture with Dr Tomlinson to seek placement on our waiting list and provide us with details of your availability, so that we can contact you in the event of an earlier appointment becoming available.
