For consultations, you will receive an invoice at the time of the appointment and we kindly ask that you settle the account on the day. We accept most forms of payment including Visa, Mastercard, personal cheque, EFTPOS and cash. We will then give you a receipt which you can take to claim the Medicare rebate. Note that private health insurance does not cover consultations, only in-hospital fees. However if you are are insured through Veteran’s Affairs it is possible for us┬áto directly bill this insurer for your consultation. Initial consultations are generally 30 minutes in duration. A lower fee applies to review appointments. Post operative reviews within the first 6 weeks after surgery are included in the surgical fee and do not require another referral.
