NSW - Sydney Specialist Anaesthetist (MBBS BMedSc(Hon) GCCS FANZCA)
My name is Dr Patrick Mamo and I will be your Anaesthetist for your upcoming operation.
I am a qualified specialist doctor with over 8 years postgraduate training in addition to 8 years of University training. I am a Specialist Anaesthetist and Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.
What do you need to do?
Not all anaesthetics are the same. 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 assist with this, I request that all patients complete the 10-15 minute Pre-Op Questionnaire. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are unable to access this survey online and a paper copy can be provided to you.
What are the fees?
I am recognised by the majority of Private Health Insurance Providers in Australia and participate in "known gap" billing. This means that if a gap is charged, the most a patient will be out of pocket is $500. For straight forward cases, I do not charge a gap.
In certain circumstances, I may be required to 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. I will make all reasonable efforts to advise you of this in advance of your surgery.
What happens before your operation?
Once I receive your survey responses, I will contact you with information about your medications, fasting times and answer any questions that you may have. The hospital will also contact you the day before your operation with arrival times and what to bring with you.
All feedback welcome
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.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of your anaesthetic or if you have any questions either prior to or after your operation, please do not hesitate to contact me.
