Fees - Consultation

Consultation fees:

  • $220    for Initial Consultation

  • $110    for Subsequent Consultation

A proportion of these fees can be claimed back from Medicare. Private Health funds usually do not provide additional cover for outpatient consultations.

Please Note a valid referral (preferably from your General Practitioner) is required to attract a Medicare rebate.

Fees - Surgery

If you have any procedure as a public patient in a public hospital, there are no out of pocket costs for the procedure as it is covered by Medicare.

If you choose to be treated as a privately insured patient in a public hospital, there are no out of pocket costs for the surgery (and the hospital will inform you if there are out of pocket costs for other services, eg. Anaesthesia).

If you choose to be treated as a privately insured patient in a private hospital, there are out-of-pocket costs for surgery and anaesthesia, as well as potentially medical imaging and pathology. Dr Mihrshahi's current fees for surgery:

- Gastroscopy, Colonoscopy, ERCP - no out of pocket charge

- Laparoscopic/open surgery (eg. hernia, gallbladder, upper gastrointestinal cancer procedures) - $300

- Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy for obesity (patients fitting Medicare criteria for obesity surgery) - $500
