If you have a confirmed booking to see Dr Anupam Pokharel, please click on option 1 below to join Dr Pokharel’s virtual waiting room.
You may do so up to 5 minutes before the appointment time, and wait patiently until your appointment starts. Sometimes you may have to wait up to 15 minutes due to unavoidable circumstances. You will be advised to click option 2 only if option 1 fails.
Please state your name as in the referral letter, so that Dr Pokharel recognizes you. You may be asked to take your photo for recognition and/or give permission to use microphone and camera of your device, which is necessary for videoconferencing. You do not need to download any software.
(Do not click on option 2 until specifically advised)
