When you see Dr White you will also require:

  1. Referral from your General Practitioner/Specialist – as Dr White is a specialist surgeon you will require a referral from your General Practitioner or another Specialist. It is the patient’s responsibility to obtain this referral from their GP.
  2. X-rays (if you have any),
  3. Medicare card and private health fund card (if applicable),
  4. Workers compensation/third party insurance details if relevant.

Dr White will need to examine your hip/knee. He would appreciate it if you could wear appropriate clothing such as:

  • Ladies – Shorts or a loose fitting skirt without stockings
  • Gentleman – Loose leg trousers or shorts

Dr White operates at Forster Private Hospital and Mayo Private Hospital. He does not have visitation rights to the Manning Base Hospital and therefore does not perform surgery in this hospital.

Fees

My staff will advise you of the consultation fees at the time of booking your appointment.  If you are a new patient we will send you a confirmation letter prior to your appointment which will outline my fees, what you need to bring to your appointment and where to find me.  There will also be a medical questionnaire form which I would like to you fill out and bring with you to the appointment.

I am a ‘no-gap’ member with all private health funds and if you require surgery you should not have an out-of-pocket fee.  It must be remembered though that you may have an excess on admission to hospital which is a separate agreement between you and your fund.

We work hard to keep Dr White on schedule but unfortunately emergencies do occur which may delay this. We are happy for you to phone prior to your appointment to ensure your waiting time is kept to a minimum.  02 6550 0705.
