What to bring
Please bring your doctor’s referral, if not already provided and medication list of current and past medications taken for your condition. Any x-ray and ultrasound reports and films if possible. In addition if you have any notes relating to your previous treatment especially surgical images these will be most helpful.
It would also be helpful if you could complete an Online Patient Registration Form
Please note that for your comfort and convenience and to enhance the quality of the consultation I recommend leaving small children at home. You are most welcome to bring a partner, friend or relative if you simply wish to have a second pair of ears.
What to expect
Initial consultations generally last around thirty minutes, follow ups fifteen to twenty minutes.
During this time I will ask you a series of questions regarding your current problem, previous health, previous surgical operations and medications.
In some cases if your problem is particularly difficult or complex a follow up consultation will be scheduled.
I will generally conduct a full examination, including a pelvic examination, a Pap smear and swabs and order a specialist ultrasound.
Please note, that I prefer the level of detail and expertise provided by a specialist gynaecology ultrasound provider and a previously performed ultrasound provided by a local radiology centre may not provide the level of information I require.
Not all of the high quality pathology and imaging providers I use bulk bill. You may expect an invoice for their services.
This is a specialist medical practice and I aim to provide you with a high standard of care. Consulting fees are therefore above the AMA rate, operation fees are at or below the AMA rate.
If you are a Healthcare Card holder or pensioner, fees are reduced.
Post operative care is generally included in the operation fee unless new problems are introduced, or extensive discussion regarding further treatment is required at the post operative visit.
For a detailed estimate of consulting and in office procedural fees including colposcopy, please contact my administration staff.
