Yes, we advise all patients to check with their health insurer that they have cover in the Mater Private High-Tech Hospital in Dublin.
If you don’t have health insurance Mr. Cawley will not be able to offer you treatment or surgery should you need it, as he only works in the private health system in the Mater Private Hospital. While I’m sure he could give you good advice and information you would have to pay another consultant another fee to seek treatment. Please ask your G.P. to refer you to the public system or to a consultant who works in the private and public health systems.
You would get an appointment within two to three weeks usually depending on the appointment type and clinic and/or your availability. Mr. Cawley likes to see patients as soon as possible.
