We offer simple procedures – Excisional biopsies and excisions from the back, torso and limbs (approx. 30 minutes).

Complex procedures – Head, neck, wider excisions of melanoma and flaps/grafts.

Fees will be discussed with the doctor at the initial consultation before the procedure is booked, as each procedure will incur a different fee.

Telehealth will be billed at the same rate as face-to-face appointments

You will need to have been seen for a face-to- face service within the last 12 months in order to be eligible to have a telehealth appointment which then attracts a Medicare rebate. This applies to both new and existing patients of the practice.

Why do you charge? Why don’t you 'bulk bill' everybody?

Although we appreciate that life can bring about financial pressures, the doctors are not able to bulk bill every patient.  Unfortunately the Medicare rebate for bulk billing does not meet the cost of running a practice and the escalating costs of providing quality care – covering the doctor’s time and where relevant the nurse’s time in the dedicated treatment room.  The rebate currently is well under 50% of what the Australian Medical Association recommends as an appropriate fee for General Practice consultations. 

As a result, there are private fees for patients without concession cards, or at particular times of the day/public holidays, with details on our website or at reception if you would like further information about this.
