Medications to Avoid Pre-operatively
Please read the recommendations regarding Medication to be Avoided Pre-operatively »
For most surgery procedures Dr Flood will see you for an initial consultation. At that time you receive information packs and an estimate of fees. Some patients like to come back for a second consultation, which is fine. Once you decide to proceed with your operation and decide on a hospital/day surgery the staff will organise a date for you. You are then given a pack containing your admission papers, your consent and your pre and post op instructions.
If you are having a procedure that you receive Medicare item numbers for, please make sure you call Medicare and your health fund so you know what your out of pocket expenses will be and whether you have to pay an excess for your hospital/day surgery stay.
These days there are so many funds with so many different contribution plans that it is worth checking, so you know well ahead of time.
We have a pre-payment policy for all cosmetic procedures. This is made 10 days prior to your procedure by cash, eftpos or credit card, either in person or over the phone.
For all procedures that have a Medicare item number, payment is due in full at your first post-op visit.
