Surgical procedures in The Ashe Street Clinic involve the use of expensive specialised equipment. Many of our surgical instruments are used only once and then safely disposed of.  Other surgical instruments are put through a three stage sterilising procedure in accordance with the HSE guidelines to ensure complete safety to patients and staff.  Suturing materials, glues, dressings and surgical assistant time are also required for most surgical procedures.

Consultation Fees for the Kerry Skin Clinic and Private Health Insurance Cover

Download PDFDownload this information as a PDF

 

Some insurance companies such as VHI, Laya, Irish Life, Garda Medical Aids and ESB Medical Provident fund may refund some of the consultation fee when you see Dr Buckley in The Kerry Skin Clinic.  However, every company has different rules and many different plans.  Some companies may refund no amount towards the consultation fee.  Other companies may refund 25% or 50% of the consultation fee.  Dr Buckley at has no control over how much can be refunded by the private health insurance companies, if any.  Some companies may refund a larger proportion of the fee for a consultant dermatologist based in hospitals and may not refund the same amount of the fee for community-based dermatologists, such as, Dr David Buckley who specializes in dermatology and is on the specialist register of The Irish Medical Council.  This is unfair, but we do not make the rules.
