Our Professional Fees
Our fees vary according to the length and type of consultation, level of Government subsidy, your age and your residency status. Our Practice is FREE for enrolled patients under 14 year olds. We are happy to provide further information on request.
If you think you may need extra time or have a long list of concerns to discuss with your doctor, please let our reception know at the time of booking. There is a higher charge for a planned extended appointment or alternatively a double appointment (30 mins) may need to be charged.
Payment is expected at the time of consultation. Eftpos and credit card facilities are available.
If you are having financial difficulty – you are not alone and we are here to help you. There are a number of options available and our Practice Manager will guide you. It is possible you qualify for some further support and we will do everything we can to help you.
