    Obstetric Consultation schedule:

    For a new pregnancy, your initial consultation will take approximately 30 minutes.

    It will take place at 7-10 weeks gestation.

    After that, your consultations will take place every 4 weeks until you reach 26 weeks.

    Then, appointments will be fortnightly until 36 weeks.

    After 36 weeks, visits will be weekly until delivery.

    Dr Tan will discuss your birth plan between 32 and 36 weeks which will include your expectations in regard to your delivery, birthing positions and pain relief options.

    Dr Tan has an open door policy and is contactable 24/7.

    Should an urgent issue arise during office hours, please contact our rooms for a same day consultation. Alternatively you will be given Dr Tan's personal mobile number to contact him urgently should the need arise.

    Toddlers and other children are very welcome in the practice which has a children’s play board in an open, friendly and welcoming environment. The practice has a customised double door so you can wheel a double pram or wheelchair through.

    Some Parking is available directly under the Mater Clinic.  Drive in via the Mater Hospital Main Entrance on Rocklands Rd, North Sydney.  Allow plenty of time to find a parking spot.

    Please discuss Consultation Fees directly with a member of the team.

The fees are extremely reasonable considering the peace of mind and the level of expertise, personal service and quality of care you will receive.
