We are please to announce we are now transitioning back to face to face clinics as lockdown restrictions are slowly removed. We still maintain very strict conditions on visiting our practice in line with Department of Health Guidelines and we greatly appreciate our patients observing these conditions when you arrive. Please see below under Visiting our Rooms for further information on attending our clinics.
If you have an appointment in the coming weeks or months, this may not change and you will receive an SMS reminder.
If we need to change your appointment details, we will contact you by phone or SMS
If you were booked for a telehealth appointment, our secretaries may contact you to offer a face to face consultation if you prefer.
For all face to face appointments, a Health Declaration must be completed before you enter our practice rooms and we may check your temperature on arrival. This includes any parent accompanying a child or any other visitors to the practice.
The Federal Government has also permitted some elective procedures to resume.
Our priority is to contact all patients who previously had surgery cancelled before taking on new patient bookings
Surgical Bookings will also be prioritised by urgency under guidelines issued by the Federal Government
For all other surgical bookings, we will waitlist you until such time as we are permitted to book your surgery

Temporary changes to our Appointments
A phone or video consultation is possible where deemed appropriate. Should surgery be required, the doctor will discuss this with you and we will wait list you until such time as surgery can be booked.
Telehealth consultations are bulk billed providing you have a valid and current referral.
If you do not have a current referral the consultation will cost $75.05 for the initial consultation and $37.70 for a follow up appointment.
Face to Face appointments
All clinic appointments will be charged at our standard rates which are included in your appointment letter, emailed to you at the time of booking (we are not a Bulk Billing Clinic).
