Practice Fees

We are a private billing practice, all of our doctors privately bill for their consultations and services. Please don’t ask to be bulk billed as refusal will offend. Our quality of care is our total focus and the reality Medicare Rebates have not kept pace with total costs of providing health services to our patients.
As a practice we have been absorbing these costs in the past but unfortunately, we can no longer sustain this.
