Patient Information

Helpful information and answers to common questions regarding fees, location, cancellations and more


Mr Davies’ rooms are located in Fitzgerald Offices, level 2, 85 Collins Street, Hobart. Access is via the elevator lobby on Collins Street.  Once on level 2, our rooms are located on your left at the end of the corridor.

Argyle Street and Centrepoint car parks are both within walking distance.

First appointment - please bring the following:

  • Your referral letter (unless it has already been sent to us directly from your doctor)
  • Completed new patient registration form (unless you have already returned it)
  • Medicare, private health insurance and Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) cards (if applicable)
  • A list of your regular medications and allergies


Australian health care funding can be complex.  At Davies Urology, we know this can be overwhelming and we strive to ensure our fee structure is transparent and straightforward. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.


Consultation fees are payable at the end of your consultation.

We are a private billing practice, however Medicare rebates are available for a portion of our consultation fees.

A current referral from you GP or other doctor is required for you to claim Medicare rebates.

Private health insurance only covers in-hospital care, so no benefit is payable for consultations in the rooms.

Surgical fees

Should surgery be required, we will provide you with a full surgical fee estimate, including estimated Medicare and Health Fund rebates.  

Payment for inpatient medical/surgical services in Australia is from multiple sources:

  • Medicare – typically Medicare pays your surgeon 75% of the Medicare Schedule Fee
  • Your health insurance fund – they will pay for the hospital fees (excluding any excess you might have) and pay some of the surgeon’s fee (this varies between health funds)
  • The ‘gap’ – this is the out-of-pocket expense paid by you and depends on the complexity of your surgery and what your health fund contributes to your care.

We have ‘known gap’ arrangements in place with most health funds to help provide clarity around your out-of-pocket costs – this will be discussed with you by our friendly staff

Cancellation policy

We request that you give us at least 24 hours’ notice if you wish to change or cancel your appointment to allow other patients to be scheduled.

Failure to provide adequate notice may result in being charged the full fee for the scheduled appointment.

Please contact the rooms between 830am and 430pm daily with any concerns regarding your care.
