NSW - Sydney Specialist Anaesthetist (MBChB FANZCA MMed)
My name is Dr Alfred Mahumani and I will be your Anaesthetist who will be working with your Surgeon to look after you during your upcoming operation.
I am a medical doctor with over 12 years of postgraduate experience and as a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists I am a qualified Specialist Anaesthetist in the field of Anaesthesia.
What do you need to do?
I recognise that every patient is unique therefore to provide you with the safest and most effective anaesthetic, it is essential that I have your full medical and surgical history. In order to provide this information please complete the Pre-Op Questionnaire, which should take no more than 15 minutes of your time in most cases.
Please be aware that if you are going home on the same day as your procedure, you will require a responsible adult to accompany you and stay with you for up to 24 hours. If this is not possible you will be required to be admitted overnight as this is hospital policy.
How much will the Anaesthetic cost?
I am registered with most of the private health funds as a 'known gap' provider and in certain circumstances I charge patients an out of pocket expense or 'gap payment'. This is usually the case when the amount refunded under Medicare for my Anaesthetic services falls well below the actual value of the service, for complex cases as well as after-hours work.
If you are self-paying/uninsured or you are not covered for your procedure by your private health insurance policy, I will provide you with an invoice and payment options in advance. My billing rates will be similar to those of patients covered by private health insurance.
All feedback welcome
When you have recovered from your procedure, I would appreciate it if you took just a few minutes to fill out the Patient Experience Survey. Your answers are completely anonymous and will be invaluable in improving the way I care for patients in the future.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of your anaesthetic or if you have any questions either prior to or after your procedure, please do not hesitate to contact me.
