Your account must be settled at the time of your consultation.
Consultation fees usually range from $72 to $140, depending on duration and complexity. If you are having a procedure or an ECG for example, these will be added to your account.
Please note that our independent contractor doctors may set their own fees and charge differently, please see their individual websites or contact them directly for more information on their fees.
If an account is not paid in full at the time of consultation, we may add up to $25 in account fees.
Higher fees apply at weekends, public holidays and after-hours.
Payment can be made by cash, VISA/Mastercard and EFTPOS. We do not add a surcharge for payment by credit card. Cheques only by prior arrangement.
Accounts which are unpaid at 90 days will be forwarded to our debt collection agency and additional charges will be added to your invoice. Please ensure you pay your account in a timely fashion.
Failing to attend or cancelling an appointment at short notice will result in a missed appointment fee of $30.
