Patient
Information

What to bring to your appointment

Please remember to bring your referral letter from your GP and any scans or pathology tests you have had done.

When attending for a gynaecology appointment it may be worth sitting down and briefly jotting down your main concerns. It can be easy to forget things when you see the doctor.

If you are coming for an obstetric appointment I recommend you speak to your parents, where possible, on both sides to see if there is any family history that may be important that you may not have been aware of such as inherited disorders or pregnancy problems.

Fees and Charges

John’s fees and charges are available by ringing his rooms on  02 9473 8747.

John also takes part in the San SWADDLE program. In this innovative package, in combination with not for profit fund HCF, participants receive no out of pocket fees, that is no gaps, for all their antenatal care, pathology, ultrasound scans, online antenatal education classes, delivery, epidural (if they want/need one) and post natal care.

This package was developed to support families by removing the financial pressures of private care in pregnancy so that they can focus on enjoying the experience and wonder of bringing new life into the world.
