BrizBrain & Spine are committed to supplying services to patients in regional and rural areas. From 1 July 2011, Medicare Australia introduced funding of telehealth services, including video consultations between patients and specialists.

Video consultations are made between you and your doctor at a distant location and is conducted using the software program Skype.

Although every patient’s situation is different, the general benefits of this service include:

  • Better access to specialist care
  • Reduced waiting time to see your specialist
  • Reduced travel time and costs
  • Reduced absence from work

The cost of a video consultation is $109.10. Our normal billing process will apply. If there are likely to be any other fees associated with the video consultation we will let you know in advance.

All surgeons at BrizBrain & Spine offer video consultations, except for Dr Geoffrey Askin and Dr Lindy Jeffree.
