FULL PRACTICE FEES
If you are unable to provide your Medicare card or the information on it, you will be charged a practice fee. However, you can receive a full refund from a Medicare office.
We also charge practice fees on your consultation day for overseas visitors, work injury patients, CTP claims and expired Medicare cardholders.
TELEPHONE CALLS TO YOUR DOCTOR
Our doctors are normally very busy with patients and cannot return phone calls. If the matter is urgent, please call 000 or head to the nearest emergency room. Otherwise, please come in and see your doctor at your next convenience. The practice does not accept requests over the telephone for prescriptions, referrals and pathology results. You are required to return to the Practice to consult your Doctor to receive these.
It is preferred that patients return to discuss test results with the doctor face to face to protect patient confidentiality and to ensure that the results are explained properly
