Book a consultation
David Gault sees patients of all ages, from birth upwards, and approximately equal numbers of men and women. All consultations take place in his clinics or over Skype. Approximately one third of problems he sees have resulted from surgery at other centres which did not meet expectation - please bring along any details of such surgery if you have them as this is helpful to Mr Gault in advising the way forward.
We recommend that you check the website carefully in advance of your consultation for all the information on the treatment you are considering and make a list of any unanswered questions you might have so that you do not forget to ask them. It is also worth considering what type of anaesthetic you prefer.
Adult clinic schedules are as follows: the Clementine Churchill Hospitals (Tuesday lunchtimes 12-2) and the Platinum Medical Centre, Wellington Hospital (Wednesday all day). The location of these hospitals can be found on the contact page.
Paediatric clinics are as follows: are as follows: the Platinum Medical Centre, Wellington Hospital (Wednesday all day) and The Portland Hospital (Thursday mornings. Parents looking for Early Ear Correction using EarBuddies should book an appointment as soon as possible, as the treatment is easier and shorter the earlier it is started.
Mr Gault speaks English and French. He has some grasp of Spanish and Arabic, but patients who speak no English are best advised to bring along an interpreter and to book a 30 minute appointment.
Patients who live at a distance from his clinics, and especially those living outside the UK, may wish to consult initially by video on Skype. If you are planning surgery, then the final assessment would still need to be made face to face, but a Skype consultation can enable Mr Gault to advise you of the various options and can be a convenient and efficient step for some patients in planning their visit. In advance of your Skype consultation, we will ask you to send photographs by by email. You should check well in advance that you can make a good video Skype connection as some countries block Skype contact.
We have standard fees for certain procedures such as ear reconstruction for microtia, set back of ears and earlobes, and ear and ear lobe reduction (macrotia) for big ears. Please note, however, that these fees assume that you have not already had surgery in other centres which has not met expectation.
Consultation fees are due on booking, unless you have an authorisation from an accepted insurer. Insurance cover for consultation or surgery is nowadays usually limited by insurers to non-aesthetic complaints related to skin lesions, skin cancers or for pain due to inflamed lesions, for example.
Under 18's can be seen only at the Portland or the Wellington Hospitals.
Whereas pre COVID-19, Mr Gault would allow consultations to over-run, on occasion, nowadays, to adhere to social distancing rules, he must follow exactly the total amount of time booked for the appointment so that patients do not collect in the waiting room. Please book the amount of time you think you will need.
