Please ensure you bring your Medicare card and debit card to each session.
It is important to note this is a private practice and we do not routinely bulk bill.
It is expected that all fees will be paid on the day of attendance.
We accept cash and EFTPOS and with Medicare Easyclaim, your Medicare rebate is deposited directly into your bank account on the day.

PLEASE NOTE:
Late cancellations (less than 24 hours’ notice) or missed appointments will incur a charge of $180 per consultation missed.
Extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration, so it is always best if you phone as soon as you know you are unable to attend the appointment.
