We are a private billing practice and bulk billing is not available.
We normally allocate 15 minutes for appointments and our standard fee is $98.00. The Medicare rebate is $39.10 and therefore your out of pocket cost will be $58.90.
In some circumstances, the issues discussed during a standard consultation may be more complex and require more time. Should this occur, a higher fee may apply. However, your doctor will always discuss this with you at the time.
If you choose to book a double appointment with your doctor, the fee will be $185.00 (out of pocket $109.25).
Our standard nurse fee (wound management, vaccination etc.) is $45.00. Medicare rebates do not apply for these services and there may be a separate cost incurred for dressings and consumables.
Accounts are to be settled in full at the end of your consultation. We accept all credit cards and Eftpos.
A merchant fee applies to all credit card transactions.
We have access to Medicare Easyclaim and therefore the Medicare rebate for your consultation will be deposited into your bank account at time of payment.
If you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment please contact us in advance to cancel or change your appointment time. A fee may be charged for failure to attend or cancellation at short notice.
