Dr Napthali is happy to offer the ease of Open Access Endoscopy for GP’s and their patients in Newcastle and surrounds. This is a practical and efficient means by which your patients can have the GI investigations completed.Low anaesthetic risk patients are welcome to be booked directly onto a theatre list at Lake Macquarie Private for timely investigations without the burden of an appointment in rooms (which can unnecessarily delay colonoscopy).If you would like copies of the Open Access Endoscopy Referral Form please contact Dr Napthali’s rooms.
