Testimonials from Patients

Why are there no patient testimonials on our website?

The medical community is bound to adhere to the standards set by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). This organisation is responsible for the registration and accreditation of 10 health professions across Australia including the Medical Board of Australia. AHPRA is responsible for the Code of Conduct regarding Advertising of these 10 health professions.

AHPRA specifically prohibits the use of Testimonials or purported Testimonials.


For Testimonials, there is no way of the public checking their validity and so they can potentially be very misleading.

"Because of the above mentioned AHPRA policy we do not have Testimonials from patients on our website and any medical website that does is contravening the Medical Board regulations as expressed through the AHPRA."  ~ Vein Doctors Group | Meet the Team
