Q: How are Dr Doneley’s fees structured?

A:

Dr Doneley’s fees are broadly structured around the fees recommended by the Australian Medical Association. The AMA publishes an annually updated schedule of suggested fees that provides this basic framework.

Dr Doneley has a set standard fee for initial consultations and a lower fee for follow-up consultations. Fee details for consultations are available by phoning the office on 07 3832 1652.

Fees for surgery differ considerably based on the procedure being performed. A fee estimate and a listing of likely “item numbers” is provided prior to surgery. “Item numbers” are codes which correspond to individual surgical procedures and are required when discussing your operation with your health insurer. It is important to note that the fee charged may be lower or higher than the quoted estimate because the actual operation performed may differ slightly from that quoted. It is not possible for office staff to quote for surgical procedures prior to consultation with Dr Doneley.

In addition to Dr Doneley’s fee, a Surgical Assistant fee may also apply. This fee may be combined with Dr Doneley’s fees or invoiced separately.

An anaesthetic fee will also apply. It is charged directly by your anaesthetist. Dr Doneley utilises the services of multiple anaesthetic groups and you will be provided with their details prior to your surgery.
