Question and Answers

Our major focus is on pregnancy care.

Our obstetric services include pre-pregnancy counselling, management of early pregnancy problems, antenatal care, labour, normal delivery, caesarean section and postpartum care.

We also offer a range of gynaecological services.

Our gynaecological services include Pap smears, colposcopy, contraception, management of menstrual disorders, menorrhagia, menopause, incontinence, diagnostic and minor laparoscopic procedures.

For whatever reason, some women can’t or  don’t want to continue a pregnancy. We offer a caring, non-judgmental counselling and termination service.

We take time to listen to your needs, provide information and answer your questions. Some women have complex medical problems before and during pregnancy. In short, we talk to you. Your wishes will always be respected and we work together as a team.  We don’t do “5 minute” medicine. Some women have preconceived ideas about what they need e.g. “I need a hysterectomy for heavy bleeding” when in fact it may not be the best solution for their problem. Many women are aware of this “old school” approach but seldom aware of other less invasive non-surgical approaches such as Mirena IUDs and embolisation of fibroids.  No patient should have a gynaecologist agree to major surgery of this sort within 5-10 minutes of meeting their gynaecologist. (The Illawarra has a higher than average rate of hysterectomy). If you have this experience, seek another opinion. We always offer a range of solutions. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and this is true in surgery too. We are happy to recommend the best surgeons for your particular condition.

We deliver and operate exclusively within the Wollongong Private Hospital. We are conveniently co-located with the Birthing Unit, Maternity Ward, Pathology, Pharmacy and Ultrasound services.

Our normal hours of operation are:
Monday to Friday 0830-2030
First and Third Saturdays 0900-1230

Life is busy and as busy professionals we appreciate how difficult it can be to access medical care during normal working hours. If you need an appointment outside of regular working hours please contact us to discuss a mutually convenient time.

For the first consultation please bring your GPs referral, Medicare Card and details of Private Health Fund insurance. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete any administration. We prefer payment via card or electronic transfer at the time of consultation.

Typically, an initial appointment takes between 45 -60 minutes. This is so we can comprehensively analyse your health needs e.g. some women present with heavy menstrual bleeding and have been too embarrassed to talk to someone about their leaky bladder. We take a holistic approach.

Subsequent appointments are typically 20-30 minutes depending on whether or not a procedure e.g. Pap smear and colposcopy are required. Sometimes, it may take longer depending on your specific problem.
