No matter which kind of specialist you are seeing, it is normal to feel nervous before your first consultation. In Dr Steven Tan’s private practice you have peace of mind because you have a concerned and dedicated professional looking after your medical needs.
Dr. Tan delivers babies at the Mater Hospital North Sydney and North Shore Private Hospital. Patients can deliver at either of these hospitals so you can choose the environment and facilities that you prefer.
He performs Gynaecological surgery at both of these Hospitals.
It is a good idea to book into your preferred Hospital once you know you are pregnant, as during busy times bookings are limited and there may be a wait list. If there are any problems don’t hesitate to discuss these with Dr. Tan directly.
Please contact the hospital to book a bed, to arrange tours and antenatal classes.
