The consultation

The initial consultation with Dr Adie will take about half an hour and will involve a physical examination. He will review your investigations and go through the results with you. Some consultations can take longer if the problem is complex or arrangements for surgery are required.

Dr Adie will discuss your condition with you and inform you of the treatment options. Together with you, Dr Adie will decide on the best treatment for you.  If surgery is necessary, a date for surgery can be booked at this consultation or you may contact us later to select a date. Patients are under no pressure whatsoever to go ahead with surgery. If you are unsure at any time please feel free to contact us.

Fees

There is a charge for the initial consultation, part of which you can claim back from Medicare. This fee is payable at the time of consultation.
