Attending your appointment

What to bring

Where relevant, please bring results of any blood tests, imaging, or any other specialist information as advised by your general practitioner. If you’re unsure what to bring to your appointment, please contact us.

Head to our contact page for more information about getting to our clinics.

Upon arrival

Please check in at reception upon arrival. We’ll ask you to take a seat in the waiting area until you are called for your appointment.

Late arrival & failure to attend

Please make sure to arrive on time. Arriving more than 15 minutes late will cause your appointment to be cancelled, to avoid impacting other patients.

If you fail to attend without contacting us, your appointment will not be rescheduled.


We are a private billing practice and bulk billing is not available.

Eftpos is preferred. We also accept credit cards (Visa & Mastercard), and DVA.

We only accept cash payments for the exact amount.

Medicare rebates

If you’ve registered your bank account details with Medicare and have a valid general practitioner referral, we’ll initiate your Medicare rebate on the day.

If you haven’t yet registered with Medicare, we’ll issue you a receipt that will allow you to make a claim yourself once registered.
