Not sure about what fees you need to pay?
We will inform you of all fees you are likely to incur for your treatment – if you’re unsure, check with the receptionists before your consultation.
What are my other options if I can’t afford the fees?
You can visit the surgeons at one of the public hospital outpatient department that they are affiliated with for no out-of-pocket payment. Call the hospital directly to make your appointment. Note: Generally you will need to expect a longer waiting time for an appointment.
