Our standard fees are as detailed below and are displayed on the practice notice board in the waiting room. Fees may vary according to the time and treatment necessary. Doctors and staff will be pleased to provide information on fees on request for services not displayed. Accounts are rendered at the time of service and patients are requested to pay at this time if possible. We accept EFTPOS, Visa, Bankcard & MasterCard, as well as cash and cheque. If you have any difficulty paying fees, please discuss this with your Doctor who can make alternative arrangements.
A non-attendance fee of $20 will be charged if the Clinic is not notified within 2 hrs of an appointment.
This $20 will be donated to a non-profit organisation – “Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders)”.
