Dr McMaster consults at a number of locations - Westmead Private Hospital, the SAN Clinic and Westmead Public Hospital. Appointments for all sites are made through the rooms at Westmead Private Hospital. A referral from your family doctor is required and should be faxed through in advance so that it can be assessed for urgency. Occasionally you may need to have further imaging prior to seeing Dr McMaster. At the time of consultation, you should bring all relevant X-rays, CT or MRI scans with you. It is advisable to arrive a little early so that necessary paperwork can be filled in prior to the consultation. For patients that are seen in the private rooms a standard consultation fee is charged regardless of health insurance status. This is partially reimbursed by Medicare. Patients seen at the public hospital will be charged through Medicare.
