Dr Pope – Consultant Neurosurgeon and Spine Surgeon
Consulting Hours:  
Mon-Fri : 08:30 to 17:00

Making Your Appointment

1. Make contact with Dr Pope's office, Tel: (02) 8320 7430 and request a consultation appointment.

2. A referral from your local general practitioner or Medical/Surgical Specialist is required. The referral is to be faxed to Dr Pope's office, fax: (02) 9954 9307. Your contact number and private health fund details are to be included on the referral. Dr Pope can then optimise your referral by either organising extra Investigations by faxing or mailing to you or your GP, or streamlining other Healthcare Professionals to manage your problem if it seems unlikely surgery may help you. This can save you most importantly time, and also financial outlay if streamlined.

3. Dr Pope consults at The Mater Hospital Specialist Suites (Main Rooms) and every Tuesday at The Sydney Spine Institute in Burwood.

Parking is available undercover at the Poche Centre car park accessible off Rocklands Rd. Rates are $5 for 0-1 hr and $7.50 for 1-2 hrs. Take the lifts to Level 2 and walk out of the Poche Centre, across the road to the Mater Hospital Main entrance and ask at the reception directions to DR Pope’s Suites.
Street parking is very difficult during business hours.

Parking at Burwood can be at the Plaza shopping centre 50 metres on the opposite side of the road or paid parking building directly across the road. The train station is 200m up the rd towards Burwood Rd.

4. Dr Pope also consults at “Spectrum Medical Imaging in Bondi Junction” fortnightly and eventually every Wednesday.
