An appointment for a standard consultation will be made with your preferred doctor or the next available doctor, depending on your preference.
Extended consultations are available on request. If you anticipate that your consultation will be long, please advise the receptionist when making the appointment.

Our appointments are classified and invoiced as follows:
Minor Service (Level A)
A brief service for an obvious problem characterised by the straightforward nature of the task that requires a short patient history and, if required, limited examination and management.
Specific Service (Level B)
A service which requires of the General Practitioner a selective history and examination of the patient, to assess and manage the problem.
Extended Service (Level C)
A service distinguished by more complex tasks required of the general practitioner when confronted with several alternative diagnoses which require a detailed history, multiple system examination, possible investigations and management.
Comprehensive Service (Level D)
A service that requires of the general practitioner a complex intellectual process, involving exhaustive history, multiple system examination and the possible arrangement and evaluation of complex investigations in consideration of multiple alternative diagnoses.
A $10 fee will apply for all non-attendance of appointments, unless at least 4 hours notice of cancellation has been received.
Your notification of cancellation enables us to schedule appointments for other patients.
