The Answers You’ve Been Looking For
Where can I receive treatment?
What to expect at the first consultation
Dr Wann can provide treatment and look after you as an inpatient at various hospitals across Melbourne - Waverley Private, Epworth Richmond, Epworth Eastern, Epworth Freemasons and Warringal Private.
Generally day admissions for cancer treatment or inpatient admissions for being unwell into hospital are covered by health insurance, including all doctors fees. Please clarify this with your insurance provider, as there are rare exceptions.
This consultation usually takes 30-60 minutes. You are welcome to bring in a support person(s) and it is encouraged to ask questions so that you are comfortable with the discussions and decisions.
Dr Wann will endeavour to see patients at the earliest opportunity and can prioritise urgent cases if reception is contacted.
Can I get a same-day appointment?
Do I need a referral?
It would be ideal to get a referral so that the relevant medical information is passed on and in order to obtain the full Medicare rebate for your consultations.
A referral from a surgeon or specialist lasts for three months.
A referral from your GP specialist can either be 12 months or "indefinite".
What are the fees?
Consultation fees are based on the duration and complexity of the consultation. Generally they follow the AMA and MBS fee structure with a small gap incurred.
A Medicare rebate is available with a valid referral.
