For GPs

General Info

West Coast Endoscopy Centre provides an adult private endoscopy and consulting service. We have recently commenced the Iron and biologic infusions and also Urea breath test to detect Helicobacter pylori. Patients that doesn't have private health can have procedures at the centre as a self insured/funded admission.

Please fax a completed referral form or use your letterhead to us and ask the patient to contact us and we will contact your patient within a day or two to make the arrangements. The waiting time for routine procedures is generally 1-2 weeks and if your referral is urgent we can generally get these done in 1-3 days.

Education

Dr Kaushik provides medical education in the form of GP seminars 4 times a year, either at the endoscopy centre or at local venues. He also provides visits to General Practices for informal case based discussions on a monthly/ 6 weekly basis.
