FEES – We are a predominantly a Bulk-Billing clinic.
Bulk-billing is provided for all patients that have a Medicare Card and are in for a general practitioner visit If you do not have a Medicare Card, you will be seen as a private patient and will be required to pay for the consultation.
If you have a Medicare Card and are seeking skin checks that initial consultation will be Bulk-Billed as well as biopsies of skin moles; however, extensions will incur an out of pocket time. These fees can be discussed with the doctor.
Discussion of test results is best done at a follow up appointment with your GP. Please allow several days for routine pathology results to be processed. Urgent tests are usually available within 24 hours.
