Other consultations, longer or more complex appointments and procedures attract different fees. There may be an out of pocket cost for dressings. Your doctor or reception staff will inform you of any out of pocket costs for treatment.
Medicare claims can be processed at the time of your consultation if you swipe your EFTPOS card. We will submit your claim to Medicare on your behalf and your refund will be deposited directly into the bank account attached to your EFTPOS card within minutes.
Payment in full is required at time of consultation
Cash, EFTPOS, Visa and MasterCard are all accepted.
For a full list of fees including prescription repeats, long appointments and procedural consultations, please ask at reception.
If you are unable to attend your appointment, we require a minimum of 2 hours notice (24 hours notice for Allied Health providers) of cancellation. Whilst we do understand that emergencies and unforeseen circumstances arise from time to time, failure to advise will result in a fee being charged that is to be paid prior to making another appointment.
Missed or cancelled appointments during normal business hours (8:00am – 6:00pm) will result in a letter being sent informing you of your non-attendance. If this occurs for a second time you will incur a $20 non-attendance fee. Missed or cancelled appointments after 6:00pm on weekdays and any time on weekends will incur a fee of $20 after the first instance. Long appointments will incur a $30 non-attendance fee.
No part of this fee can be claimed back from Medicare.
