Due to the Government putting a freeze on Medicare Rebates and not realising the true value of quality care by GP's, private billing and out of pocket costs are necessary for the survival of good medical practices. 

 

Most services are Bulk Billed (as long as you have a current medicare card) and are designed to be accessible to all patients.  Services offered by our doctors are supported by skilled nursing staff.  ** Fees may also apply for services in addition to the consultation - please check with the doctor if any additional fees will apply***

 Some services will incur an additional fee due to the cost of materials.  This may include:

Pap Smears

Minor Surgical Procedures

Implanon Removal & Insertion,

Mirena Insertion & Removal.

Dressings

 Please ask for the fees when making your appointment.
