How to find us
Who will I speak to?
Mrs Diana Morgan, is a registered nurse and midwife, who has worked in both the United Kingdom and Australia. Her friendly and caring nature has been an asset to our practice for more than 13 years. She has a good understanding of our patients’ medical conditions and is a valued part of our team. Diana usually works on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Deidre Delaney joined our practice with a strong background in business organisation, and training in medical practice management. Deidre enjoys meeting our patients, and making them feel comfortable during their time with us. She co-ordinates their hospital admissions should that be necessary, and ensures that our practice runs smoothly. We are very grateful that Deidre chose to join us. Deidre usually works on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
We have recently welcomed Ms Cindy Youings, our new practice nurse to the Pelvic Pain SA team. Cindy has extensive experience in both medical reception and midwifery. She also has a strong interest in women’s health and a wonderfully friendly nature. We are grateful that she has chosen to join us at Pelvic Pain SA.
38 The Parade is a bluestone cottage located on the south side of The Parade in Norwood near the corner of Sydenham Rd. When travelling from the city, it is just before the Sydenham Rd corner. Bus Routes 122, 123, and 125 leave Currie St in the city and pass our rooms. You should get off at bus stop 6. There is parking along Sydenham Rd. Please tell us before your visit if you require disabled access, and we will be happy to explain the best route for you.
Preparation for your visit
If you have had any previous surgery, particularly if this was for endometriosis, then a copy of your operation record is very useful. Please ask our staff how you can obtain this information, if you do not have a copy yourself.
We are also very pleased to see photos from your previous surgery if you have them.
If you have pelvic pain, we request that you read the free pelvic pain e-booklet available on this website before your visit. Women with pelvic pain often have several different problems and reading the e-booklet first allows us more time to spend on the problems that concern you most.

What to bring with you to an appointment
You should bring a referral from your doctor if you are seeing Dr Evans, Dr Woolcock, Dr Mezzini, Professor Rolan or Dr Craigie. No referral is required to see Dr Fairweather or Dr Guymer.
Please feel comfortable bringing your partner, a friend, or a family member with you. It can be difficult to remember all the things we discuss, and it will make it easier for you to discuss the treatments offered later on.
How much will my consultation cost?
The consultations we offer are longer than usual, and most women we see come to us with a complicated mix of problems which require time to assess and manage effectively.
This is time consuming care to provide, and does involve an out-of-pocket expense to you. Please feel comfortable discussing this with us.
If physiotherapy or psychology services are recommended, your general practitioner may consider that a GP ‘Care Plan’ is appropriate. If so, Medicare provides a rebate for part of this service. If you have private insurance, this may cover part of your psychology or physiotherapy costs.
Neither Dr Evans, nor Dr Woolcock have public hospital operating lists, but women without insurance may choose to meet the costs of their surgery themselves.
If you are unable to cover the cost of individual care, there are several free or low cost resources available for you. Many of these are described on our page ‘Free or Low Cost Options for Pelvic Pain’
If at any time you have any comments regarding your care (whether positive or negative), we encourage you to do so. We appreciate feedback and continually work on providing the best care we can for all our patients.
