If you require a consultation with A/Prof Ghabrial you must first have a referral, which can be either from another specialist, a general practitioner or an optometrist. You then call or email the Macquarie Street practice to make an appointment. Sometimes patient’s have their appointment made for them directly from the referrer’s rooms. The consultation is where A/Prof Ghabrial will assess the reason for your visit. It is a good idea to prepare beforehand the questions you would like answered. Once you make contact with our helpful staff they will obtain all your relevant details at the time of your call.
You should have these details on hand:
- your Medicare card number
- Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) number
- health insurance details
- any medications you may take.
Alternatively, patient’s can also complete their details on the patient registration form available below:

If you are a DVA gold card holder and require transport, we can arrange for you to be picked up from your home to your appointment and then home again.
Once you have had your consultation with A/Prof Ghabrial, your fee is paid in full and the Medicare rebate is processed for you on the spot. Any further appointments or surgery bookings are made then with detailed information given to you if you are booked in for day surgery.
At any stage you are always able to call us with questions you may have regarding your consultation or prospective surgery and we will be very happy to assist you.
