Dr Chauhan invites all patients to bring a friend or relative into their consultation in Melbourne, both to listen to what is said and to ask questions.
Dr Chauhan will generally look at your scans and images before he consults with you so that he can spend more time examining you and explaining your condition and its management. He encourages questions and strongly believes that a well-informed patient achieves the best outcomes.
If an urgent procedure is required, and you are happy to proceed, Dr Chauhan prefers to perform this at the end of the consultation. This may mean up to a further unplanned hour in our Melbourne clinic.
If a non-urgent procedure or operation is recommended, you will then see the bookings staff in order to book a time as well as to be informed about any costs that are involved.
Dr Chauhan believes in seeing only patients that need specifically to see a retinal specialist and will only follow you up if absolutely necessary. He receives referrals from a large network of excellent optometrists and ophthalmologists across Victoria, many of whom have similar equipment to his clinic, and endeavours to return you to their expert care once his work is done.
