As a medical specialist Dr Ahmed can only see patients who have a written referral. Without a referral you cannot claim your entitled Medicare benefit. Please ensure you have this letter, or that your General Practitioner or other specialist has sent the referral. Referrals can be faxed/emailed or posted. If you don’t have the referral on your appointment day; you can still be seen but won’t be entitled your receipt upon production of the referral. Dr Ahmed can see patients without a referral (overseas patients etc) but you will pay the full fee with no medicare entitlement.
