    Do I need a medical referral to see Dr Kernohan?

    A medical referral is NOT required to have a consultation but is recommended if you wish to claim part of your consultation on Medicare. You will also need a valid referral if your surgery is eligible for a Medicare Rebate and you wish to claim part of your surgery on Medicare or your Private Health Fund.

    Can I have Skin Cancer Surgery or Minor Surgery on the same day as my Consultation?

    Dr Kernohan will consult with you in relation to your case and discuss your treatment options. Your options may include a biopsy, a small procedure in the rooms under a local anaesthetic, or admitting you into the hospital for a larger procedure. He can perform an urgent biopsy if he deems appropriate, but will usually arrange another appointment for any treatment.

    Can I claim Dr Kernohan’s procedure from my private health fund?

    Your health fund will only come into effect when you are admitted as an in-patient into hospital. They do not pay for out-patient appointments/procedures.

    Can I drive after my procedure done in the rooms?

    Usually yes, unless it is a procedure involving your eyes. The procedure is done using local anaesthetic, meaning you will not be asleep and there are no reasons for you to be unable to drive.
