*  The charge in blue is my standard charge for the type of consultation specified. Any other amount from within the range provided would be agreed ahead of the consultation.
Please be aware that if your consultation overruns 30 minutes, because there are multiple issues addressed, additional issues are added at the end of the consultation or very complex medical situations are dealt with, you may be charged £300. You would be informed during a consultation if this is the case. You will have an option to decide not to proceed further.

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE STANDARD APPOINTMENT TIME FOR FOLLOW UPS IS 30 MIN.
If you like to have a 15 min follow up appointment please arrange this at least one day before the appointment.
Please be aware that requests on the day of the appointment cannot be accepted.

*** Please note home visits are only offered in exceptional circumstances and depend on the address of the residence. It  goes without saying, due to the distances and congestion in London, it is  a very time consuming service which is often required during very unsociable hours and therefore it is not sustainable unless it it set up as a bigger organisation. Please search the web for alternatives.





I am a registered provider for all national and most international insurance companies.

 

Please be aware that many insurance companies require a referral from your GP in order to provide you with a preauthorisation. Retrospective authorisation may be declined.


Many insurance companies offer a fee assurance program or a 'recognised consultant' scheme. This is an agreement with the providers to charge within a range, which is fully covered by your insurance policy. I have not entered such a fee assurance agreement with any of the insurance companies but my charges are in line with colleagues in my field.
Having not entered such an agreement your insurance company still pays a 'non-fee-assured' or 'non-recognised' provider unless there are specific limitations outlined in your policy.
My outpatient charges are within the range of most comprehensive schedules of payments. This may not apply for certain limited individual agreements and is not including any excesses on your policies. Up to November 2016 MediAccounts have confirmed that insurance companies have not passed on any shortfalls to my patients.

There has been no increase in my fees for new consultations since 2016.


However, I have noticed some insurance companies are increasingly offering policies with limitations to their reimbursement and a cap to the amount paid for consultations. These caps have become more noticeable and there may be a shortfall of your individual policy.

The best advice is to check with your individual insurer before a consultation if you want to be sure.
