The fee will depend on the consultation type (new problem vs a review appointment) and there will be a small fraction of the consultation fee that you may have to pay out of the pocket, for further information please contact the rooms. You should expect about $70-150 out of pocket for initial and followup visits remembering that Dr Naseem does not charge out of pocket for the surgeries she performs. Pensioners and patients with special circumstances maybe bulk-billed.
