We are in the process of waiting the full 12months of being on our private health insurance now so that we are covered for the hospital/theatre fees. At the moment we are still looking at going with Dr Woolcott in Sydney, which means we will be flying down for the op and staying at least 1 or 2 nights before flying back. I've read a lot of positive things about him and i find the way his fees are all worked out to be easy to understand and on the more affordable side, (well for these kind of procedures haha)
We haven't gone to our GP yet though to discuss anyone local, but we will do, have had so many things going on in other areas.
How has your search been going? Have you found anyone more local?
