Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

All questions have been personally answered by Mr Bernard Lynch.

Q. I am uninsured. How much will I pay out of pocket?
A. For a consultation, out of pocket cost is about $10 extra compared to someone who has health insurance. In general, the total out of pocket cost for a first appointment would be less than $100. For sugeries, the total out of pocket cost varies considerably depending on the type of sugery required. A cost estimate on a case by case basis can be provided to you on request for a fee. My staff may need up to 24 hours to provide you with this estimate.
Q. I have an urgent problem and need to be seen as soon as possible. Can I get to see you?
A. If an early appointment is not available, my staff usually can arrange a special appointment within 24 hours to be seen. If the urgent problem requires immediate attention then going directly to the A&E department at John Fawkner Hospital for assessmet by their staff may be your best option. Following assessment, the A&E doctor may access me to plan treatment.
