If you have a cosmetic enquiry you do not need a referral. However, if you have a medical condition like a skin cancer or are large breasted then it is recommended that you have a referral so you can claim a rebate for your consultation and medical treatment.
The consultation can take between 45-60 minutes. Each condition or enquiry will be different. Dr Joseph Rizk will take a history, listen to your concerns and requirements and perform an examination. He will then give you his assessment and educate you on your options. You will have an opportunity to ask questions. This is all performed in a discrete manner in a tranquil setting.
A consultation is $400. If you have a GP referral letter, then part of the fee may be claimable through Medicare. Please note that a non-refundable deposit of $100 is required at the time of booking.
Small procedures can be performed in the office procedure room. These include small moles, minor skin cancers or fat grafting of small amounts. More complex procedures are performed in a private hospital setting in the eastern suburbs or inner west of Sydney.
There is follow-up after every procedure to assess wounds and ensure appropriate care is taken. Dr Joseph Rizk will review you as needed until complete healing.

Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
