Frequently Asked Questions

You will need to bring your Doctor’s referral and all relevant investigations (e.g. X-rays, CT scans, MRI, Bone Scan Reports and films or discs).
Consultations in private incur an out of pocket expense. Patients who are eligible for Medicare will have part of the fees reimbursed to them from Medicare. Payment on the day of consultation is required and we accept cash, cheque or Visa / MasterCard . Please note it is not our practice to bulk bill.
Patients who have private health insurance can have their treatment as a private patient in hospital with the majority of the costs covered by their health fund. If you are covered by WorkCover, TAC or Defence there will be no cost to you for any surgery you may have. The doctors' fees are not fully covered by the health funds and an out of pocket expense is incurred by the patient to cover the variance. We provide our patients with a close estimate of the costs involved.
