POST-OPERATIVE REVIEWS

Dr Atkinson will review you to ensure you are healing without complication. This will be back in the clinic that you had your original consultation. There is no cost for your review appointments.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Our team wants to provide the highest care to all of our patients. To do this, we want to ensure that patients are seen as soon as possible so we want to minimise last-minute cancellations. All payments must be made prior to the day of surgery for procedures being carried out under General Anaesthetic.

 

A deposit may be taken for procedures under local anaesthetic especially if special materials or equipment are to be ordered in for your case. Last minute events happen that can be out of your control so we will do our best to reschedule you as soon as possible if you do notify us that you will miss your appointment. However, if you fail to attend without notifying us we may keep your deposit.
