- relevant/current x-rays and scans

Our reception staff can provide an estimate of the consultation fee at the time of booking to see a particular specialist. We ask that your account be settled at the time of your appointment. Payment options include VISA, MasterCard, EFTPOS, cheque or cash. You will be able to claim at least part of the consultation fee from Medicare provided you have a valid referral and Medicare card.
The fee structure for endoscopic and surgical procedures will depend on the particular specialist, nature of the procedure and your private health insurance status. Your specialist will be able to discuss this in detail with you during the consultation.
