More complicated surgery is likely to be more costly, but I capably perform grafts, flaps and definitive surgery for most melanomas.
If you have private health insurance, you may wish to clarify the level of cover with your insurer prior to your appointment to determine the gap between to fee and your insurer’s contribution.
Note to GPs and Patients:
I do not enrol patients for capitation funding, so your enrolled patients remain your enrolled patients. Please indicate on your referrals if you wish to perform biopsies and excisions on your patients yourself.
Also if your GP refers you to Spot Diagnosis, the fee will be reduced by $10.00. If you compare this to Dermatologists Consultation you will pay both for a GP Fee of $46.00 and then the Dermatologist’s fee of over $250.00.
How to prepare yourself for a Skin Examination:
Sometimes there is only a single skin issue, but sometimes the entire skin needs to be examined with a Full Skin Examination.
Please ensure that you prepare yourself for Full Skin Examination by arriving with appropriate clothing to reduce the stress of this examination. During the examination it is normal for patients to only wear underwear whilst sitting or lying on the couch during the screening examination.
It is difficult to “see” through makeup, so it is preferred that makeup is removed prior to appointments. You may wish to wear sunglasses into the consultation for this reason.
Nail vanish is also best removed.
Scalp Examination are part of Full Skin Checks, so please bring your own comb or brush. When required, a hairdryer is used to improve vision of the scalp.
