Making Appointments

Our practice operates on an appointment system with 15 minute time slots.

Appointments can be made in person at the receptions desk, by telephone or online via your computer or mobile phone.

If you require longer than 15 minutes, please ask at time of booking for a longer appointment. For example, if you have complex conditions, multiple issues and counselling.

On arrival, it is important to let reception staff know you are present by either presenting at the reception counter or using the self-check in kiosk.

If your problem is urgent, e.g. chest pain or shortness of breath, please tell the receptionist immediately.

As we do see urgent problems, unavoidable delays do happen in the appointment schedule.

Fees

Out of pocket costs

For fee-paying patients, our fees are set well below recommended AMA rates to ensure they remain more affordable. We have intentionally kept the GAP for all consultations not involving additional tests or procedures (such as ECG, spirometry, excisions etc), to approximately $40 regardless of the length of time for the consultation.

Any additional procedures required will add a further Gap Fee however the maximum daily Gap is capped at $70 ($50 for concessions),

We have decided to keep the Gap Fee for longer consultations the same as for a Standard consultation to encourage patients to book longer appointments where extra time is required (such as complex conditions, multiple problems, depression and stress etc). This will assist us avoid running late and ensure shorter waiting times.

Payment

All accounts must be settled on the day of service, no accounts are issued.

Fees may be paid by cash, cheque, Credit card or  EFTPOS.
