With the exception of DVA patients, we are not a bulk billing practice. Our fee schedule is outlined below.

Should further treatment be required, our medical support staff will provide you with a full fee estimate. If you decide to proceed with the procedure, all treatment costs must be pre-paid 30 days prior to your treatment date. After the procedure, patients will then be provided with an itemised receipt in order to claim back any applicable Medicare and/or insurer rebate.

We strive to give excellent medical care, to help us achieve this, we kindly request that you give us at least 24 hours’ notice if you wish to cancel or change your appointment to allow other patients to be scheduled into your appointment time.

A cancellation fee applies that will equate to 100% of the appointment fee if less than 24 hours’ notice is provided. We will advise you of the exact fee upon cancellation and will send you an invoice. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis for situations outside of your control.
