Fees and Payment

Our fees are determined by a combination of economic factors including the Australian Medical Association and the Australian Dental Association recommended rates and costs associated with running a practice.
The fees listed below are indicative only of fees billed by our health professionals. Charges will vary depending on the length of time you spend with the professional and the complexity of your health condition.

Repeat Prescriptions, Referrals and Pathology and Radiology Tests:
Doctors providing prescriptions, referrals to either specialists, radiology or pathology tests are responsible ethically and legally to ensure that these are correct and warranted. A consultation, therefore, with a doctor will be necessary even if the referral or prescription has been recommended by another professional.
Appointments with specialists and pathology radiology tests may incur additional charges.
All telephone requested replacement scripts and referrals posted out to patients will incur an administration fee.
We accept payment by cash, Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
Rebates from either Medicare or your private health fund can be processed at the time of payment using our Hicaps system. For eligible services, your rebate is then automatically paid back to your account.
