Paediatric Surgery & Urology
Fees are available on request.
Southern Cross (and some other) consultations are usually claimed directly from the insurance company, however some policy exclusions or excesses may apply.
We are happy to provide information to arrange insurance pre-approval when necessary.
Payment arranged by invoice after clinic visit with 14 day terms. (Bank transfer or Pay by PoLi is preferred, EFTPOS is available but attracts a 3% fee).
Persistent non-payment may result in details being passed to a collections agency, in that situation all charges are passed to the non-paying client.
I trained in Paediatric Surgery in the South-East of England and obtained my Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2014. I am vocationally Registered as a Specialist Paediatric Surgeon by the Medical Council of New Zealand.
