Making an appointment
If you wish to claim the Medicare contribution for the cost of your consultation and treatment you will need a current referral from another doctor, dated on or before the date of your appointment. These must be obtained prior to your visit and cannot be backdated.
Specialist referrals last for 3 months from the first claim and GP referrals generally last for 12 months. Indefinite referrals only allow Medicare reimbursement for the long term treatment of a single problem.
It is also valuable to discuss the problem with your GP to assess the need for and urgency of the appointment.
If you have an urgent matter such as a skin cancer, or your GP has expressed the need for urgency, please explain the nature of your concern to our receptionist.
Please contact our reception on 03 9822 9944 to schedule your time. Please be ready to give us a mobile number so that we can SMS a reminder text prior to your visit.
Our receptionists are happy to explain the fees that might apply to your consultation. If further procedures are necessary additional fees may be charged and our doctors are happy to explain these and discuss alternatives.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let us know 24 hours before so that we can offer this appointment to another patient.
