Patient Experience Survey for Dr Carl D'Souza

My name is Dr Carl D’Souza and I will be your Anaesthetist.

I will work closely with your surgeon to ensure you receive the best care possible.

I am a Specialist Anaesthetist - a fully qualified medical specialist in the field of Anaesthesia. I have been specifically trained in this area for over a decade. And, as your Anaesthetist, my sole responsibility is to ensure your safety and wellbeing.

In order for me to better understand your specific anaesthetic needs and requirements, I would appreciate you taking the time to fill out the pre operative questionnaire. The information you provide is invaluable in helping me choose the best anaesthetic for you. For your peace of mind, I can assure you that the information you provide is completely secure, seen only by me and deleted after your anaesthetic is given.

I will call you prior to your procedure discuss what the anaesthetic will involve and to go over any concerns you might have.

Please be aware that after your anaesthetic 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. If this is not possible you will be required to stay overnight in the hospital. This is hospital policy.


The fee for your anaesthetic is based on the time from when your anaesthetic begins until you are taken to recovery at the end of your surgery. This is also the time Medicare and the health funds use to calculate their refunds for anaesthetic services. It will usually be possible to estimate this time before your surgery. Your surgeon’s rooms will generally be able to give you an indication of the duration of your surgical procedure, although you should bear in mind this will be an estimate.

As a rough guide the out of pocket cost (or Gap payment – that which is not covered by Medicare or your health fund) will be $500 for the first hour of your procedure and then $400 for every subsequent hour thereafter.

So for example if your procedure takes 4 hours the out of pocket cost to you will be $1700.

If you require a more detailed costing, my secretary Lauren can be contacted on 8436 7617 for assistance with this.

After your procedure I would appreciate you taking just a few minutes to fill out the Patient Experience Survey. Your answers are completely anonymous and will help me greatly in improving the way I care for patients in the future.

I look forward to speaking to you in person.
