To make an appointment to see Dr Nicholson in his rooms you will first require a current referral from you GP, Dentist or other Specialist Doctor. A referral from your GP for a particular condition is current for 12 months and from your Specialist is current for 3 months. Any new conditions will require a new referral.

When you call the clinic to make an appointment, please let the receptionist know if your referral is an ear, nose or throat related problem.

When you come to the clinic for your consultation, patients will need to bring to Dr Nicholson the current referral letter, Medicare card, Pension or other concession card if applicable and any recent medical or diagnostic results.

If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice.

Note: Being referred to Dr Nicholson’s private rooms for your initial consultation does not benefit patients with their waiting period at the public hospital Outpatient Clinic.

Fee Policy

Barwon Otolaryngology Head and Neck is a private clinic and all fees can be discussed when you make your appointment with Dr Nicholson.

Patients will be asked to make payment in full on the day of the consultation and those with a current referral will be able to apply for the applicable Medicare rebate.
