    Default GP/Ob in Bunbury

    I'm seeing Dr Seton and because he has an agreement and birthing rights at SJOG he's a preferred ob/GP. I'd say the OOP would depend more on your PHI fund and hospital charges than the dr though, so might pay to check with your insurer.

    If you need a csec with Dr Seton he will use Dr Cottee where available as Dr S doesn't have surgery rights, despite being trained in the field, similarly he is a trained paediatrician but has to call an outside paed in if your bub needs paed sign off / checks and that will usually become an OOP cost to you.

    Default GP/Ob in Bunbury

    Thank you I'm not really up with how the hospital side of things works. I'm only 5 weeks and thought I had plenty of time, though people are telling me to book now as Bunbury OB's are so busy!

    I didn't have any out of pocket expenses in regards to Dr Seton. The bills I had were my hospital cover excess of $300 and a couple hundred from the paediatrician when my daughter was born with breathing difficulties. Also my medication I needed post birth was on my bill

    Default GP/Ob in Bunbury

    I just phoned the clinic and requested an appt with Dr Seton (recommended by friends who were also seeing him) when I first got my positive. He was happy to take me on as a new patient - but in saying that I was previously seeing a different Dr within the practice who doesn't do maternity so I'm not sure if that made it easier for me to switch over.

    I've made an appointment with Dr Gadd, I asked a midwife friend and she chose him when she delivered. Crazy to think I'll only be 5 weeks when I'm seeing him! He was booked for the month but had a cancellation 5 minutes before I called, so maybe it was meant to be
