Office Staff

My aim is for you to experience as little pain and discomfort as possible during and after the procedure. I will be conducting a pre-anaesthetic consultation prior to your surgery. At that time there will be an opportunity to discuss any matters of concern. However, if there is anything you would like to discuss with me before you arrive at hospital, please feel free to contact me at  If you wish to speak to me by phone, please leave your contact number in your email and I will contact you as soon as I am available.

Fees for Anaesthetic Services

The fee for your anaesthetic is billed separately and is in addition to A/Professor Tran’s fees and any hospital charges.

Patients with Private Health Insurance

Health insurance has become a very complex process. Depending upon the operation, the insurer and level of cover, “out of pocket” expenses can vary along with the way fees are processed. Where the health fund allows, I am happy to direct bill your fund and minimise your out of pocket expense. Where the health fund does not allow, my office will bill you directly and after your procedure, issue you with a receipt which you may be able to claim some part of from Medicare and your private health fund.

Patients without Private Health Insurance

Patients without private medical insurance are required to prepay the total fee no later than five business days prior to their procedure.

Payment can be made by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Amex) over the phone at (03) …………… or in person by cash or credit card at the …………………………………
