About Dr Costa Karihaloo
Our response to COVID-19: Message to our Patients and Referrers
During this challenging time Surgery Central are committed to continuing to care for patients (both new and returning) through our rooms in Gateshead. For the safety of both patients and staff we are limiting face-to-face consultations and triaging all referrals. We are extensively using telehealth for appointments particularly for returning patients. In some cases we are deferring consultations and recall appointments.
We are committed however, to continue to see patients with new symptoms, concerns regarding cancer (diagnosed or suspected), and offering surgical care as is appropriate during this time. Although much surgical care is being deferred at this time we remain available to assess patients and do have access to theatre time (public and private) for urgent operations where required. We will continue to be available via phone, email and Medical Objects.
