About our fees

We are a mixed billing practice. Consultation fees will depend on the length and complexity of the consult. Medical consumables associated with the treatment provided will attract a separate fee. All outstanding accounts are to be settled at the time of consultation.

We offer Medicare online claiming, so any Medicare rebate can be paid directly to your bank account immediately, as long as you have a savings account card.

Allied Health services fees

Our clinic provides on-site Allied Health services. There is an out-of-pocket expense for these services. To find out about what costs are involved with these services, please speak to reception by calling 8280 5822.

Cancellations

Please call us if you cannot attend your appointment.

We work hard to provide our patients with exceptional care. If you cannot attend your appointment, please call us to cancel it so we can make that time available to another patient needing our help.

Please understand that we assign highly trained nurses and doctors for these appointments, and there are many other patients who would appreciate this time. With appropriate notice, we can give your appointment to someone else.

Fees for unattended appointments will be charged as follows:

$15.00 fee for a standard appointment (not cancelled within two hours of the scheduled standard appointment time).

Additional fees

Procedures, such as skin lesion removal, are subject to an additional fee of $30 for treatment room costs. More complicated minor surgery will incur a higher fee which will be explained by your GP.

Coronavirus Health Alert

The threat level of COVID-19 in South Australia is escalated. For the safety of our patients and staff, we encourage telephone appointments (where possible).

If a face-to-face appointment is required, it will be time-limited, and we request that all patients wear a face mask while in the clinic.

We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.

If you have symptoms of the flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. Please refer to the SA Health website for a list of COVID-19 clinics and testing centres.

If you are unwell and have respiratory symptoms, please ask for a telephone appointment with a GP, and a safe review will be arranged. Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe.

The Government has restricted Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has been directed by the State health authority  to self-isolate or quarantine, has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e., the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless. Please be aware that otherwise a private or gap fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults.

Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
