  • Can I see Dr Slattery if I don’t have private health insurance? 

    Yes, Mr Slattery sees uninsured patients and if surgery is requested quotes for this can be obtained easily

  • What should I do if I have questions after my surgery?


    Mr Slattery will see you directly after your operation and explain the surgical findings with you.  Should you have questions which arise once discharged from hospital, if they are non urgent in nature then they can be discussed at your post operative visit.  If they are of an urgent nature, or if you believe you have had a complication please contact us as soon as possible.

  • What do I need to bring to the first appointment?

    Before the first appointment we will send you a link to register your details with the practice, and this will expedite your appointment on the day. You are requested to bring your medicare card, referral details, any X-Rays, CT scans, MRI scans or other imaging or blood tests that you have had.  If X-Rays or scans have been done, we prefer them to be in hard copy rather than on discs or online, as these can be difficult to access.

  • Can I come to you for a second opinion?

    Yes! Mr Slattery routinely sees patients who have previously seen other surgeons, and often at the request of other surgeons.  If you have previously seen another surgeon but would like a second opinion please make an appointment.  If you have previously had surgery it is very useful to bring details of the previous operation, if you have them

  • What should I do if I have questions after my appointment?

  • What are the costs associated with surgery?

    There are costs associated with surgery, and details of these can be found in the Costs of surgery page
