I could only fond one review on him on RateMD's .com but it is a positive one


I don't know that you will get much from Medicare unless you are treated for a medical condition of the eye, such as cataracts, glaucoma or diabetes.

Do you have a referral to him, otherwise I am not sure Medicare will pay anything.

A referral from a GP, Optometrist or current
specialist is required before an initial consultation
with an Ophthalmologist in order to receive a
Medicare benefit for that consultation.

Here is some more info on Medicare and how it works, including safety net thresholds, I'm sure this info will be good for others too.

Thank you, Medicare explained it nicely and the receptionist. I have to have my eyes dilated and my retinas checked as I had a hole about 2 years back. Just trying to stay high spirited considering my work situation.

Tear was lasered and we need to check up in 4 weeks time/ he says his laser machine the only one of its kind in Brisbane. Practice very busy, very efficient. Hopefully I get a clean bill of health November.
