We are a PRIVATE BILLING Practice and Day Procedure Centre.

A valid referral is required to receive your Medicare rebate and also for our specialists to communicate findings with your referring doctor. You can obtain a referral from your general practitioner which is valid for 1 year from initial consultation. A referral from another specialist is valid for 3 months from initial consultation. It is your responsibility to ensure your referral is valid. If your referral is expired you will be asked to obtain a new referral as required by Medicare prior to your next appointment.
Overseas visitors/Non-residents (ie those without Medicare) also require a referral and may claim their rebate from their international private health or travel insurance.
Costs for surgery are determined following your consultation. A cost estimate is provided prior to booking your procedure.
As a general guide to our private surgical fees:
Minor diagnostic or therapeutic procedure fee: $50-125 out-of-pocket/gap expense
Day surgery procedure fee: $0-350 out-of-pocket/gap expense
Excesses or co-payments may apply depending on your chosen private health insurance product.
Bronze, Silver and Gold private health insurance products provide eligible cover for your day surgery.
Please note that medical advice can not be given outside of consultation (ie via email or phone call). Should you be an existing patient requiring a prescription, this will generally be provided without consultation if you have been seen in the past 3 months and this is deemed appropriate by your specialist; an outside of consultation prescription fee will generally apply ($15).
