Endoscopic procedures

Please note that Dr Efthymiou performs gastrointestinal endoscopy at John Fawkner Hospital which is a private Hospital.

Elective procedures for insured patients are performed with a no GAP policy. This means you will not be charged any additional out of pocket fees for your procedure by Dr Efthymiou or for any pathology taken during your procedure. There is usually an excess payable to the your Health Fund, please contact your fund to confirm the exact amount.

For patients without private insurance, if you prefer to have your procedure undertaken privately, we will obtain a quote for you from John Fawkner Hospital. Please be aware that if there is a complication the costs associated with your Hospital treatment maybe significantly higher.

If you prefer to have your procedure in the public system we kindly request that your referring Doctor forwards your referral to the appropriate public Hospital directly.
